Connecting People, Land, and Climate through Food and Wine
Join us for a interesting seminar on the interconnectedness between Climate change, Land, People and mangement options.
Land is at the heart of the human endeavor, providing food and materials, livelihoods, and a source of beauty and inspiration, as well as supporting ecosystems and biodiversity, and playing a unique role in global climate as both a major sink and source of greenhouse gases.
Managing land to meet the Sustainable Development Goals while sustaining healthy ecosystems is a major challenge. This research seminar will highlight efforts to both quantify and qualify the benefits that people value from land, and how the delivery of these benefits vary with management options across ecosystems, ranging from large-scale land acquisitions in Africa to food systems across Europe to vineyards in California.
Kim Nicholas is a leading expert on how climate change affects vine and grape development in the vineyard. Kimberly comes from a wine growing family in California and is currently an Associate Professor at Lund University.
This event is organized by the AdaptationCONNECTS project in the Department of Sociology and Human Geography at the University of Oslo.
