Term: 2013-2016

We will examine the design and progress of a successful interdisciplinary science and development project (by IDRC and Fundación Bariloche), document how the challenges of interdisciplinary and intersectoral work are met, and how progress is shaped by the needs to solve real problems of development and adaptation to global change. Our team will collaborate with the existing project on water security, working both with project scientists and engineers and with government and civil society to map research, development and decision making processes.
Using in-depth, open interviews, progress reports and government documents, our team will study the managerial, communication and capacity building aspects of co-design strategies used for research and technical management, and decision making at several governance levels. The aim is to reveal a practical scheme of interaction and feedback between investigation, development actions in the field, and institutional and community needs and responses. Results of this investigation will serve as a guidance to scientists and institutions of science governance towards improving the generation and mobilization of interdisciplinary knowledge and resulting development interventions.
