Practice of resilience in mountain landscapes: Exploring risk and landscape investments in rural Nepal (PECA III)

Practice of resilience in mountain landscapes: Exploring risk and landscape investments in rural Nepal (PECA III)

This project aims to explore how smallholders cope with and adapt to environmental, economic and social changes, and how these processes affect the landscape they inhabit. It will also contribute to the growing body of socio-political nuanced understandings of resilience and adaptive capacity.

This is an interdisciplinary research project and will combine ethnographic methodology with the analytical concepts of resilience, risk, adaptive capacity and landesque capital, in order to understand smallholders’ strategies and practices of livelihood security and landscape investments.
