Special Research Projects on Global IssuesThe research projects in this category examine the large-scale relevance of NCCR North-South's accumulated findings, in particular concerning prominent global debates on topics like food security, poverty, natural resource management, migration, and climate change. By surveying the results of many studies from inside and outside the programme, the researchers aim to identify patterns of change or recurring contexts that may be used to determine suitable policy responses at the global level.
