Insights into the disturbance regimes of urban ecosystems supports planning for future feedbacks between human decisions and ecological function. Urban ecological infrastructure (UEI) are a major focus of urban LTER proposals as it links social and ecological change.
What are the pathways that enable or constrain the realization of positive, nature-based futures? We use the transformative governance capacities framework (Hölscher et al. 2019) to identify how governance actors have enabled system-level change and adapt this framework to include a longitudinal perspective.
We ask: How does pathway comparison reveal patterns in how transformative capacities have enabled UEI in LTER contexts? How have LTER's supported transformation through time? We propose a session with the following structure: 1) Brief presentations by team members 2) Intro to pathways 3) Small group discussion questions 3) Informing future pathways 4) Wrap up and continued collaboration.
