Theme 4. Sustainable use of Biodiversity and Ecosystems
Leaders: Prof Richard Hobbs University of Western Australia & Dr Sarah Bekessy, RMIT University

Managing the sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystems demands an integrated approach that reconciles ecological, social and economic dimensions. Research that tackles these three elements simultaneously is challenging due to disparate disciplinary thinking and dialects. The Environmental Decisions hub researchers Hobbs, Bekessy, Pannell, Gibbons and Driscoll drive strong research agendas that simultaneously address social, economic and biological drivers of change, and indicators of utility, particularly in peri-urban and semi-rural environments.

The research from this theme will assist and inform the best approaches for implementation of EPBC Act Strategic Assessments and Regional Sustainability Plans.
