LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies

Fondé en 1996 et inspiré des cultures historique, géographique et humaine de la Vallée de la Loire, LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies a pour mission de dynamiser en région Centre-Val de Loire les échanges internationaux au sein de la communauté scientifique des laboratoires de recherche publics et privés, d’accroître le potentiel de recherche et de valoriser l’excellence scientifique présente en région.
LE STUDIUM accueille des chercheurs internationaux confirmés pour des séjours de longue durée, et les met à disposition des laboratoires de la région. En parallèle, LE STUDIUM
propose une animation scientifique qui favorise les échanges transdisciplinaires et intensifie les collaborations internationales entre les équipes de recherche. Son action contribue ainsi
à la construction du capital humain pour la recherche, le développement et l’innovation en région

Globally, the status of rivers in law is changing rapidly, as rivers themselves are beginning to receive legal rights. This growing transnational movement accelerated in 2017 with the recognition of rivers in Aotearoa New Zealand, Colombia and India as legal persons. In Aotearoa New Zealand, this recognition was a way ...
Several of the key challenges to implementing environmental flows are related to the social and political context of environmental flows projects. These include community acceptance and buy in, political will and legislation, as well as effective stakeholder engagement.  Despite this, in many countries there remains a delineation between environmental and social outcomes, and the process to ...
The intergovernmental Ramsar Convention on Wetlands celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.  Its global treaty provisions and conservation policy frameworks have always been based on the best available ecological and hydrological science.  Over the years, however, there has been a growing appreciation that truly sustainable strategies depend just as much on understanding societal factors, Indigenous ...
In north-western Canada, glacial retreat left behind large lakes that led to the development of three massive freshwater deltas (Peace-Athabasca, Slave and Saskatchewan).  The productivity of these delta floodplains drew both wildlife and humans, leading to strong cultural connections to the landscape and economic opportunities through the fur trade, fisheries and guiding. But throughout the ...
In this ‘SDG Decade of Action” we are aiming to facilitate a nature-culture orientation related to water wisdom with a focus on our young citizens. Traditional knowledge related to water has endured over time to bridge the void between the past and the present, offering a means to facilitate unique solutions to urban problems of ...
This paper will provide a review of work being undertaken to bring together the consideration of nature and culture in policies, programmes and practices of the World Heritage Convention, and a linked series of renewed collaborations and new relationships between the nature and culture sectors.  These include the integrated nature-culture programmes Connecting Practice, and World Heritage ...
In northern regions, many rivers remain ice-covered for a period of three to six months and have two distinct low flow periods: mid-winter and mid to late summer. Societal water demands are highly seasonal, for example with peaks in demand being associated with summer agricultural activities in many regions, and ...
Rivers give rhythm to all life in their catchments. Floods and droughts trigger both, etho-physiological adaptations by biota, resulting in biodiversity, and one species, H. sapiens, resulting in cultural diversity. The River Culture Concept (2016) takes an attempt to re-establish harmony between humans and rivers. The five tenets of the concept include, (i)  reconsidering priorities ...
Public participation is an effective way to resolve the tensions between contested objectives, while maintaining ecological integrity. New Zealand is one of the few countries that takes a collaborative approach to environmental management, mandating that management plans for catchments are co-created with local communities based on the concept te Mana o te Wai. The ...
The Mara River starts its journey in the Mau forest in Kenya, flowing through diverse waterscapes and famous savannahs into Tanzania, where it reaches the Mara wetland system before spilling into Lake Victoria. The landscapes surrounding the Mara River are shaped by the seasonality of its flows. Its exceptional flora and fauna follow the ...
