Development Challenge

Now concluded, the Development Challenge included several projects that identified water as the essential natural resource shaping the African landscape. Working side by side in the field, teams of Princeton ecologists, anthropologists, and hydrologists documented the linkages between water, wildlife and human populations in East African dry lands and contributed scholarship concerning the role of vegetation in the hydrological cycle and in the preservation of landscapes and wildlife habitats. The projects funded under the Development Challenge are detailed below.
