Project Description

Natural capital, ecosystem services, decision-making and the commons

The aim of this project is to build a values-based approach to decision-making that reflects the interrelated and interdependent consequences of land-use choices and associated changes across socio-cultural, ecological and economic value domains. Meeting UK Government’s ambition ‘to leave our environment in a better state than we found it’ will require an environmental land management approach which adopts principles that respect knowledge of interaction, interdependence and the reality of trade-offs. This project offers the successful applicant the opportunity to research polycentric governance of, and a shared relationship with, natural resources in the Cumbrian Commons landscape.

Funding Notes

The studentship includes UK/EU PhD tuition fees and stipend
