ATREE's Chethana Casiker wins best poster presentation award at the Indo- German Conference on Rural-Urban Transitions.
ATREE's Chethana Casiker's poster on ' Drivers of Bee community structure in the urbanizing landscape of Bengaluru' won the best poster presentation award at the Indo-German Conference on Rural-Urban Transitions recently.
The conference was organized by Kassel University, Georg-August University, Gottingen, Germany and University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru. It provided a forum to explore and exchange concepts on rural-urban transitions, research approaches from different disciplinary perspectives, and the merit of interdisciplinary integration for better understanding their complexity. The structure was inspired by Ostrom’s description of Social-Ecological Systems as comprising resource and governance systems, resource units and actors, their interaction in a focal action situation, and various feedback loops.
The conference showcased current work by Indian and German partners in FOR2432- a collaborative research initiative by Indian and German scientists, but also had contributions from outside the consortium, as well as participation of stakeholders outside academia.
