Developing research on other environmental and development issues that transcend our core research areas.
LASEG members also investigate or write about issues that do not strictly fit with our three main areas, since our interests span across other dynamics of policy and social-ecological change.

Specifically, we have paid attention to:
This project evaluated citizen science as a tool to increase and diversify participation in traditional ecological knowledge conservation.
Bringing indigenous and local knowledge to climate change policy.
Research into existing initiatives of sustainable food procurement in Spain
