PRODIGY in a nutshell
The principal interest of the project is to understand whether a higher diversity within systems spanning from soil health to economic and social aspects enhances their resilience in the Western Amazon Basin. The project aims to describe the complex interdependencies by revealing the respective tipping points of the system-immanent functions. Jointly with local stakeholders, PRODIGY will contribute to the development of sustainable options for future decisions, which avoid the crossing of system relevant tipping points and safeguard livelihoods in a (climatic) transforming world.
