Our Case Studies

BridgingVALUES draws on novel conceptualizations regarding the (1) telecoupling of immaterial and material flows; (2) embedded plural values in decision making; (3) social equity linked to people’s wellbeing in the protected areas contexts; (4) pathways for sustainability and justice; and (5) governing the BES-society nexus for transformative change. The project is applied in six local case studies: three in the EU (Germany, Spain, Sweden) and three in the Global South (Brazil, Laos, South Africa).

BridgingVALUES follows the « Wayfinder » and «» transdisciplinary approaches, designing pathways to just biodiversity conservation through knowledge co-production with stakeholders. Expected impacts include 1) increased awareness by managers and policy makers on the importance of bridging across different BES values and their equity implications; (2) increased legitimacy of management and policy decisions through meaningful stakeholder involvement; and (3) adaptation of PA management strategies to fit desirable pathways for more just and sustainable futures.
