Welcome to the RISC-RISE website!

Our Mission

Are communities at the service of their territories and markets or are territories and markets at the service of their communities? The RISC Consortium has addressed this question since 2007 through comparative research and training on the human and environmental impacts of regional integration, creating and consolidating a cross-regional and interdisciplinary network of scholars engaged with these questions. Since 2020, the mission of RISC-RISE is to promote innovative solutions to socio-ecological vulnerability in communities through inter-regional partnerships of academics, stakeholders and government officials aimed at establishing dialogue between research, policy and social action.
