What is a CESU?
Nationally, Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Units (CESUs) provide research, technical assistance, and education to federal land management, environmental, and research agencies and their partners. These partners serve the biological, physical, social, cultural, and engineering disciplines needed to address natural and cultural resource management issues at multiple scales and in an ecosystem context. The multi-disciplinary structure of CESUs makes them well-suited to address federal agency needs for sustainability science.
As can be seen in the map above, the CHWA CESU is one of seventeen (17) units in the national network. To learn more about the CESU national network and its member units, please visit their websites by clicking on the following logos:
