Tom Evans (Principal Investigator - IU Geography), Co-PI Beth Plale (IU-Informatics) and Co-PI Shahzeen Attari (IU-SPEA) received funding for a new NSF funded project titled "Impacts of Agricultural Decision Making and Adaptive Management on Food Security”. This is a $3.6 million project ($1.8 million at IU) in collaboration with colleagues at Princeton University (Dr. Kelly Caylor, Dr. Justin Sheffield and Dr. Lyndon Estes - Dept. Civil and Environmental Engineering) with work focused on farmers in Kenya and Zambia. It builds on prior collaborative work by Evans and Caylor in Kenya and Zambia addressing smallholder farming, water governance and adaptation to climate variability.
