Sustainable natural resources
This area of research is focused on the policy and practical challenges of ensuring the environment and natural resources are sustainably maintained and used. Our research is interdisciplinary and global in scope but with a strong focus on low-income countries. Issues we examine cut across environment and development, encompassing the physical and social dimensions of scarcity, access, variability and shocks in natural resources. Our work recognises the interdependent nature of development: that economic growth, development and poverty reduction are all linked and necessary for addressing global and local environmental challenges, and underpin human wellbeing.
