Biodiversity underpins the cultural and economic prosperity of Australia. The NERP Environmental Decision hub was funded through the Australian Governments National Environmental Research Program (NERP), for four years from 2011 to 2014. We will carry out multidisciplinary, applied research in decision science for biodiversity conservation.
The research will result in new tools, data, models and authoritative syntheses that enable Australian governments to make evidence-based decisions that protect biodiversity. Our research program is structured around delivering outcomes on each of the five NERP research priorities: values, ecosystems, threats, sustainable use and markets.”
Our major research themes are :
