Sustainable development & environmental policy

We develop strategies to meet conservation and development objectives, such as systems for payments for ecosystem service and design of environmental policy instruments.  We undertake multidisciplinary assessments of the relative importance of coastal areas, estuaries and freshwater systems for conservation planning and management decision making, taking into account economic and social opportunities and constraints as well as ecological targets.
