Natural Resources and Environment Management
Sub-Theme 1: Climate Change and Environment Management
Social Services and the Quality of Life research will address issues of human capability in terms of survival and access to social services. Improvement in social services resulting in the wellbeing of the people is a paramount factor to achieving poverty reduction.
A healthy and educated population, for example, ensures adequate supply of skilled labour and therefore high productivity, better income distribution and improved quality of life in the society
Sub-Theme 2: Effective Management of Natural Resources
Good governance in natural resource management is a crucial element to ensure that renewable and non-renewable resources are properly utilised so as to benefit current and future generations. Due to its importance over long-term use of resources, ESRF will continue to work and engage in further research activities in this aspect. ESRF intends to work on the effectiveness of distribution of benefits from natural resources.
