Socially conscious research can have direct social and ecological impacts. Research for Change gives practical examples on this, and demonstrates the connections between theory and practice in development and conservation strategies. The examples described here show how applied research can enable and support social justice and sustainable communities. For example, R4C presents research findings on the role of institutional interplay, spatial reorganization and multi-level governance in addressing adaptive capacity and sustainability within and around Pacific Rim National Park Reserve in Canada and the Saadani National Park in Tanzania. We hope Research for Change inspires you to do more in caring for the world’s diverse peoples and the environment.
