The CSPE (Communities of Science and Practice Engage) Network: Mitigating the implementation gap in environmental initiatives through community engagement and public pedagogies

It is estimated that 70% of the population of Uganda, Botswana, and Nigeria directly depend on the biodiversity of their ecosystems for their livelihoods, health and well-being. These ecosystems are being damaged at alarming rates in conjunction with a deterioration of social, cultural, and economic prosperity. While research, innovation, and policy addressing these environmental and social realities is carried out nationally and internationally, these occur largely without community involvement or qualitative input and mostly without successful implementation (Adelle, 2016; Oluka, 2016; Rwakakamba, 2009; Wingqvist & Nilsson, 2013). The CSPE Network brings together environmental and social scientists in community and public pedagogies with the following key aims:

Building Connections: Community-Based Phytostabilisation/Remediation in southern Africa

The purpose of this project is to scope the potential of phytostabilisation – planting designed to keep materials in place - as an environmentally sensitive, inclusive and low-cost strategy that will allow for an enhanced social resilience in the face of food insecurity and economic precariousness (keeping roads working) while at the same time enhancing the ecological resilience of much needed arable lands (designing roadsides that mediate erosion and can potentially even become productive in their own right) and the long-term social resilience of communities that are precariously connected via these roads.
