Antonio J. Castro, Associate Professor
I am Associated Professor of Social-Ecological Systems and PI of SOCIECOS Lab at the Department of Biology and Geology at the University of Almeria (Spain) and Affiliated Faculty at Idaho State University (USA). I am a Lead Author for Values Chapter of the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). I coordinate the WaterSES program, an international initiative endorsed to the Program for Ecosystem Change and Society (PECS). WaterSES compares the social-ecological dynamics causing and caused by water scarcity and governance across international place-based research sites with the goal of finding sustainable solutions to balance the water needs of nature and society.
