Our research helps understand the complex interaction of social, economic and environmental factors to enable more informed decision-making, planning, governance and engagement processes.

Climate change responses: social and economic research

We research the human response to climate change and the social and economic factors that need to be considered in adapting to a changing climate.

Innovation and adaptation in livelihood development

Our social and economic work is helping communities in Australia and overseas to adapt their livelihoods for the future. In particular, we are helping developing economies address challenges such as water security, sustainable agriculture and climate adaptation.

Ecology and natural resource management

Our research looks at the links between social, economic and environmental systems, and the design and assessment of governance strategies for these interdependent systems.
