Abstract

Sivee Chawla has operationalised Ostrom's design principles for terrestrial social-ecological systems (SESs) using dynamic simulation models. Her work has given new insights into the spatial interplay between governance and landscape change from the systems perspective. The research contributes to extending SES theory to better understand spatially explicit feedbacks and cross-scale interactions.
