Our Research

PLACE-BASED CONSERVATION

We conduct interdisciplinary research to investigate how the conservation community can adapt practices to respond to changing environments. We focus on developing tools and methodologies that will enhance the capacity of communities, managers and governments to maintain social and ecological integrity in the face of local, regional and global change.

NATURAL CAPITAL & ECOSYSTEM SERVICES

Our goal is to advance the science needed to integrate the concepts of natural capital and ecosystem services into decision-making. We develop solutions to better define, value and incorporate natural capital into decisions concerning land use change, poverty reduction, economic development and the conservation of biodiversity.

SUSTAINBLE CONSUMPTION & PRODUCTION

With 3 billion people set to enter the middle class in the next 30 years, how we consume and what we produce will define sustainability. This future reality demands that we develop alternative approaches to consumption and production and adapt our current systems.
