Research for Mitigating Syndromes of Global ChangeA Transdisciplinary Appraisal of Selected Regions of the World to Prepare Development-Oriented Research PartnershipsEdited by Hans Hurni, Urs Wiesmann and Roland SchertenleibPublisher: Bern, Geographica Bernensia, 2004
The present publication is the final outcome of the “Syndrome Pre-SynthesisProject” (SPSP), a preparatory project initiated in 2001 to pave the way for the NCCR North-South. The SPSP applied a transdisciplinary approach to identify research partnerships for development in 8 regions of the world. The primary aim of the present publication is to present an initial synthesis of core problems in each region, of the status and focus of related research, and of corresponding new research needs. Based on the results of this participatory process, the NCCR North-South programme has followed up on the outcomes of the regional syntheses by identifying future research aims along the general lines determined in the workshops.Hurni H, Wiesmann U, Schertenleib R, editors. 2004.
