Project Description

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Global temperatures are likely to increase by 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels by 2030-2052. Increasing land conversion to feed the growing population and growing consumption per capita add to this threat to biodiversity. How to increase food availability, whilst mitigating global warming and managing land use change, is one of the biggest questions facing humanity today. The aim of the project is to assess how farming systems can contribute to a solution. A literature survey, considering global-scale predictions alongside local impacts, will highlight stakeholders to engage with and case studies to describe, leading to real-life discussions with them and observations of their practices. Integration between research disciplines will be at the heart of this project through consideration of societal responses together with the evidence provided by science.
