In response to the change in human and natural environments over the past three decades, transitional countries have experienced dramatic urbanization. In the context of socioeconomic and biophysical changes, however, knowledge on this urbanization processes is limited. In my dissertation, I used the Mongolian Plateau (MGP) – i.e., Inner Mongolia (IM) and Mongolia (MG), as a testbed to study the processes and causes of urbanization through the socio-ecological system (SES) framework. This will provide a better understanding of the complex relationship between human and environment corresponding to rapid urbanization in transitional economies.
