Exploring Regional Alternatives
In the ERA program we explore alternative regional futures. Our objective is to broaden the range of perspectives about what is possible in the pursuit of sustainable and fair development. We do this through analysis that stimulates new ways of thinking and by facilitating deliberation around alternative goals, visions and strategies.
Our place-based approach has been explicitly multi-scale embedding our work at more local levels within Northern Thailand inside larger regional, national, and international contexts. We cooperate with and contribute to several international scientific networks to review and synthesize state-of-the-knowledge related to regional and global environmental changes and their implications for sustainable development.
