Our foundations


The first phase of the institute, 2014 to 2017, involved working with a range of partners on diverse projects under three research themes: place-based conservation, natural capital and ecosystem services, and sustainable production and consumption. 

This portfolio included helping protected areas adapt to climate change, testing a ‘big data’ approach to show the links between watershed health and human health, assessing the biodiversity impact of agricultural commodities, and identifying solutions to reduce the environmental footprint of cities.

Most of these projects are now closed but the research findings for some of them are still being processed and shared.
