Researchers from Theme A studied and evaluated the effectiveness of environmental management actions, such as establishing protected areas, habitat and ecosystem restoration at a landscape scale and marine zoning. Our work has ranged from the global and continental to local scales. Working across scales, we explored the implications of policy and management options for biodiversity and other ecosystem and environmental processes, such as water and carbon balances. Research in this area is expected to contribute to IPBES – the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services. The research within this theme encompassed several sub-areas, two of which are highlighted on this site.
