Assessment of current biodiversity management measures

Assessment of current biodiversity management measures

Our research in this area has focused on what works, what does not work and what are the barriers to improvements in biodiversity governance. In particular, we have focused on the perceptions and values in relation to people and biodiversity which underpin different understandings of what are the problems, and consequently what are seen as appropriate governance solutions to improve biodiversity. We have conducted interviews and a workshop with key stakeholders involved on biodiversity governance, including representatives from government agencies, land manager and environmental organisations. Findings indicate that values play a role in relation to determining what to conserve and where and the ways in which to motivate stakeholders to engage in particular land management practices and how to evaluate the different approaches to biodiversity governance.
