TradMod: From traditional resource use to modern industrial production: Holistic management in western Norway
The UNESCO Chair is heading the RCN funded project 'TradMod - From traditional resource use to modern industrial production: Holistic management in western Norway' under the MILJØFORSK programme.
The west coast of Norway is regarded as the most resource-rich part of the country, with high economic productivity related to hydropower, fisheries, aquaculture, and the petroleum industry, alongside shifting dynamics in its urban, peri-urban, and rural populations. By choosing Nordhordland - Norway’s first Biosphere Reserve under UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere programme- to study major challenges in converting to greener development and wealth creation, we aim to build system-wide knowledge and awareness of ecological dynamics and processes in the social-ecological system characteristic of this region.
The TradMod project runs from 2018 to 2022.
