How do we live on this planet without exhausting the resources we need to survive?
Solving increasingly daunting planetary problems will require greater collaboration among researchers and practitioners on the ground to answer simple but invaluable questions: What is working? What isn’t? And how do we teach the next generation of scientists and practitioners?
A new partnership between Conservation International (CI) and Arizona State University (ASU) aims to answer these and other questions in forging a new approach to conservation and sustainable development. As part of the initiative, CI scientists will work as “professors of practice” alongside ASU professors, drawing in expertise from a broader mix of disciplines while filling the research-to-action gap.
