A systematic analysis of the social and landscape drivers of human-wildlife coexistence


Principal investigator Mihai I Pop

Mentor Cristian I Ioja

The project aims to develop a framework to facilitate the self-organisation of the stakeholders involved in the mitigation of the human-wildlife conflicts in urban areas. The proposed objectives are: (1) Understanding the social-environmental drivers of human-wildlife conflicts within urban areas by mapping the spatial relation between human activity and wildlife occurrence; (2) Defining the socio-ecological characteristics and typologies of human-wildlife conflicts, and the present collaboration network between social groups; (3) Define the potential input and collaboration network of different stakeholders, into the mitigation of human-wildlife conflicts by considering the social-ecological drivers.
