All research projects at the Luc Hoffmann Institute operate within our three research programmes, which are derived from core principles within WWF’s conservation strategy.
These research programmes reflect:
- The fundamental place-based nature of conservation;
- The critical need to consistently value biodiversity and ecosystem services within a wide range of decision-making and policy contexts;
- Our conviction that long-term solutions to conservation problems cannot be found without fundamental change in global patterns of consumption and production.
Each programme is coordinated by a research lead who works inside and beyond the WWF Network to explore research opportunities and needs. They partner with academics and policy and practice experts to design and execute each research project.
