Our new book for stakeholders: food and biodiversity in SW Ethiopia

By Joern Fischer

As this post is going online, we’re in Ethiopia talking to stakeholders — about a new project, and about our new book (freely available here)! The book summarises the last five years of research by my research team, and also includes some research findings by Kristoffer Hylander. Indeed, it is Kristoffer who inspired me to work in Ethiopia in the first place, so a special thanks to him!


The book is of potential interest to stakeholders in Ethiopia, but also might be of interest to other researchers working on social-ecological systems elsewhere. Every chapter is an accessible summary of findings published in the peer reviewed literature (with “further readings” indicated at the end of every chapter).

You can click through the short presentation above to get a sense of what the book is all about. Enjoy, and feel free to share this open access product widely through your networks!
