Natural resources such as water, land, air and minerals provide societies with an endowment on which to base economic development. These resources are crucial contributors to human well-being and environmental sustainability. However, population growth, dietary changes and climate change are all threats to these finite resources.
You need insights that can help you manage natural resources smartly and sustainably in order to avoid resource degradation which risks, government, communities and the environment.
We can provide this insight by analysing different polices under a wide range of scenarios.
Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
- What impact could the loss or degradation of natural resources have on national, regional or local economy?
- How should regions, cities and local governments cooperate to ensure the efficiency and coordination of adaptation and mitigation measures at wider geographical scales?
- What are the direct and indirect economic impacts of natural hazards, extreme events and disasters?
