Catherine (Kate) Pringle

Resilient Systems Institute

Kate has a background in environmental science and environmental law and currently operates as an independent researcher. She is also registered for a PhD at the Centre for Complex Systems in Transition (CST) at Stellenbosch University. Her doctoral research applies a social-ecological systems lens to expand on emerging theory on system coherence and its role in building general resilience within the context of water governance.

Kate has a special interest in social-ecological systems, resilience, ecosystem services, and water resource governance and management. Her work focuses on the interface between ecosystems and human well-being, particularly the ecological systems and processes that underpin ecosystem service provision at a landscape level, how environmental change affects these systems, and how we can track change and build resilience.
