We undertake critical research into the links between conservation and agricultural sectors through environmental and geospatial planning, remote sensing, and qualitative and quantitative social science approaches and methods. Our empirical and practical experience draws particularly from research projects related to the EU’s system of agricultural subsidies, conflict mediation and resolution between conservation and agriculture, and ecosystem services’ assessment.
We undertake our work with the inclusion of specialist and ‘expert’ views, as well as make every effort to include local, affected stakeholders in the research at hand. Our young team is competent in the field of agricultural engineering, environmental (conservation, agricultural, planning) law, earth observation and environmental management. We possess not only field- and project- related and developed experience, but also partake in university-level teaching and training in these fields.
