Seminar: Integrating diverse values into watershed management
January 17, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, 443b Saunders Hall
This is a public seminar from Dr. Leah Bremer, Assistant Specialist, University of HawaiÊ»i Economics Research Organization, Water Resources Research Center
Managing watersheds for multiple benefits including for water quality and quantity and linked cultural, ecological, and economic values is one of the most pressing resource management challenges in HawaiÊ»i and globally. Applied, interdisciplinary research plays a crucial role in meeting this challenge by illuminating the social, economic, and biophysical factors influencing watershed management and the many ways that people use and value these systems. In this seminar, I present applied research payment for ecosystem services programs in the Andes and on watershed management in HawaiÊ»i to illustrate approaches to incorporating multiple values into resource management and planning. Together this work demonstrates how explicitly addressing diverse uses and values of water and watersheds can create more durable and equitable outcomes.
