LTAR Human Dimensions Working Group

The University of Idaho’s Human Dimensions of agroecosystems research team works in collaboration with the Agricultural Research Service’s Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Human Dimensions working group. The LTAR Human Dimensions working group facilitates the overarching goals of the network by supporting social, economic, cultural, and other human community-based components of longterm agroecosystem research. These include improving agricultural productivity, environmental health, and human well-being by creating a socio-economic framework for assessing and advancing the long-term sustainability of agricultural production.

The LTAR Human Dimensions working group plays a key role in the network, helping to guide development of strategies for sustainable intensification that improve rural prosperity, community well-being, and quality of life. This will be achieved through:

  1. Engaging stakeholders to contribute human dimensions components to business as usual systems and visioning aspirational systems and perceived impacts;
  2. Developing methods and indicators to assess impacts to rural prosperity and human well-being;
  3. Identifying opportunities and barriers to adoption of sustainable agroecosystem management strategies;
  4. Developing and delivering knowledge, tools, and products to facilitate adoption of aspirational strategies and innovations.
