2- Objectives

The first objective of this programme is to encourage research initiatives from researchers in developing countries on the PED interactions. In view of a rapidly degrading situation in many areas of the population-environment inter-linkages, there is an urgent need for capacity building activities in a field poorly covered by research organisations in the South.

Pripode is also intended to produce a knowledge base to help decision-makers implement measures compatible with the emergence of new forms of global governance. The analysis will often combine the methods and tools derived from both social and natural sciences. Therefore, a further objective of the programme is to contribute to sustainable development at various scales, from the local or urban level to the regional level.
