Work under this theme addresses the role of knowledge and evidence in conservation decision making, policy and practice, as well as contested views on the science-policy interface. Research is sensitive to diverse forms of knowledge and expertise, ranging from the use of remote sensing and big data, to local, traditional and indigenous knowledge systems.
