Diego uses anthropological research methods to identify the human drivers, perceptions and consequences of desertification tipping points in Namibia’s communal drylands. This work is part of a collaborative, interdisciplinary research project called NamTip, involving various universities, research institutions and organizations in Germany and Namibia.
In the next two years (2023-2025), he will expand his research scope to explore the socio-economic dimensions of rangeland restoration and future social-ecological tipping points in the context of climate change.
