This cross-cutting theme recognises that biodiversity is declining faster than at any time in human history, and that nature recovery is a priority goal for the UK and global governments. The CCRI works on a range of projects aimed at addressing biodiversity loss, particularly from an environmental or conservation social science perspective. Our work often focuses on land owner and manager behaviours and motivations, and policy mechanisms for incentivising nature-friendly land use that can promote nature recovery.
