Research Project: Long-Term Agroecosystems Research (LTAR) Human Dimensions Data Collection and Assessment

Location: Northern Great Plains Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3064-21600-001-016-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2023
End Date: Aug 31, 2025

Advance integration of the human dimensions baseline data to the LTAR common experiment and multi-scale analyses of regionalization. Develop primary data for a variety of social well-being indicators as well as general indicators on social perceptions of resilience, tradeoffs, and awareness related to agroecosystem functions.

A multi-site pilot will be used to add a producer survey component to human dimensions baseline data, and establish capacity to implement full-scale future producer and consumer surveys for the network via instrument design and sampling frames. Research activities will continue to advance data collection, management, stewardship, and analyses to complete these efforts, thereby providing critical LTAR baseline data and analyses.
