The UNU Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES) and the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGSNRR) have signed a cooperative agreement that will expand their collaboration. Currently, the two institutes are collaborating on a joint book project on multifunctional land-use systems in China’s dryland areas — a product of a German Research Foundation funded project led by UNU-FLORES Academic Officer Dr Kai Schwärzel.
The aim of the expanded agreement is to promote young scientists and the exchange of scientific and technical information. The two institutes have agreed to develop a staff exchange programme aligned with their international activities as well as carrying out case-based research in a global context, jointly publishing books and papers, and organizing academic meetings and conferences.
