ZEF at the International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM) in Vienna

June 09, 2009.  

ZEF organizes two sessions at the International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM) taking place in Vienna, Austria, on July 5-8, 2009.


ISSRM is one of the premier trans-disciplinary scientific conferences, organized annually by the International Association for Society and Natural Resources (see http://www.issrm09.info/). Since 1986, ISSRM has been held in six countries on three continents. In 2009, the 15th ISSRM is hosted by the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria.


ZEF's session on IWRM, 'Integrated Water Resources Management - Challenges and Innovative Strategies from Around the World' aims to bring together students, researchers, and practitioners to find a way out of the participation vs. power impasse. We will identify the challenges and opportunities involved in complementing these contradictory discourses.


This session welcomes papers on theoretical approaches, methodological discussions and application of transdisciplinary knowledge to facilitate research and practices of IWRM. This session will be followed by a panel discussion on the key themes of power, knowledge and scale for IWRM.

The session on 'Sustainable Resource Management: The Role of Knowledge, Education and Certification' is being organized in cooperation with the Institute for Landscape Development, Recreation and Conservation Planning (Vienna University).


This session aims to promote communication and knowledge transfer between scientific communities as well as GO and NGO representatives working on human dimensions of local level natural resource management and the environment. It will critically elaborate on the interface between knowledge, education and certification in regard to natural resource use, management and conservation in developing countries. The session will provide insights, findings and conclusions from research projects conducted in four case studies located in three countries, namely Ethiopia, Guyana, and China.
