Ecology & Environment Unit

The Unit forms a focused, interdisciplinary programme of research and advocacy to integrate rigorous natural and social sciences to develop pathways for sustainable conservation and the use of ecosystem and promotion of nature-based solutions to climate, livelihood and development. The work relating to ecosystem focuses on generation of knowledge on sustainable use and conservation towards effective policy and action on the ground, develop community-based natural resource management to strengthen rights and deliver equitable conservation with tangible livelihoods benefits and propose standards, practices and capacity for conservation and sustainable development at local, regional and global levels. The work of the Unit relating to climate change and emergencies including disasters is underpinned on rights-based approach, covering prevention, preparedness, adaptation, direct response and rehabilitation. The Unit’s research on traditional knowledge explores many aspects of natural resource management. In case of sustainable production and consumption, the UO particularly focuses on three areas – (a) right to development, (b) intra-generational equity and (c) inter-generational equity.
