National and local conservation organisations in biodiversity-rich developing countries require institutional capacity in conservation leadership and systemic organisation.
Planned adaptation to climate change may be achieved in many different ways. One approach is ecosystem-based approaches to adaptation.
There is an urgent need to identify the key mechanisms underpinning climate change impacts on biodiversity in order to inform climate change adaptation.
Policies to reduce carbon emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD+) are becoming increasingly important as a mechanism to protect tropical forests. International negotiations have resul
This project aims to develop and deploy a rapid assessment tool to understand how far conserving sites for their biodiversity importance also helps to conserve different ecosystem services (ESs), r
Despite growing awareness of the importance of ecosystem services in supporting human well-being, conservationists are rarely able to provide policy-makers with robust information about the overall
The conservation community are in broad agreement that Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD and now REDD+) is an essential development in steps to tackle climate chang
The data collected by earth observation remote sensing is a powerful tool for conservation and in such a rapidly changing field, it is essential that conservationists working with satellite imagery
