Rights for Ecosystem Services


R.E.S. Project

The Marie Curie project explores the idea of Rights for Ecosystem Services (RES), as rights to be recognized to sustainable traditional and non-traditional sustainable local communities that contribute to the conservation of ecosystems, with the aim of protecting, and fostering their environmentally-beneficial actions.

I come from Sicily, Italy, and I have mostly worked on the challenges of the idea of biocultural rights of indigenous peoples and local communities. 


Fieldwork will be conducted in the Egadi Archipelago (Sicily) and in Scottish islands, in order to provide an empirically grounded, context-specific testing of the proposed RES framework.


I am among those who think that science has great beauty.
