Current research and outreach programs coalesce around three program areas: food systems and community food security, social justice and labor in natural resource-dependent industries, and community and economic development in natural resource-dependent communities. Projects include integrating social criteria into sustainable agriculture; Humboldt County (CA)'s transition from a timber economy to restoration of natural resources; and projects to help CA counties monitor social, economic and demographic trends they are experiencing.
