Policy and Management Impacts
Biodiversity is not an issue that stands alone. It is a concept
that sits within a co-evolving system of social and ecosystem
interactions at a variety of scales. To address biodiversity fully,
it is necessary to see the context within which it is framed.
This module seeks to explore the conflicting influences on decisions that affect biodiversity, for example:
Improving engagement and governance require:
- Changes in markets and consumer demand
- Normative influences within the agricultural
- Changes in policy and agricultural funding schemes
We take an integrated approach to examine the biodiversity
implications of policy and management change, using advanced simulation and GIS modelling techniques to explore the issues, together with broader qualitative analyses.
