Making biodiversity pay
In the face of rapidly declining biodiversity, we need to make urgent decisions: where to invest, what to manage and what approach will work?
CSIRO scientists recognise the trade-offs we face in society and are researching techniques to support good natural resource management, more effective investment, and better biodiversity and ecosystems outcomes.
The research involves
- working with indigenous communities to better protect their and Australia's biodiversity assets
- developing methods to establish mainstream markets for biodiversity goods and services
- scoping planning, management and investment tools for policy makers
- monitoring biodiversity indicators for national and regional scale reporting.
