Forest Policy and Climate Change
Our research focuses on the policy and governance arrangements for forest management and forests and climate change. This includes measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and for supporting adaptation to climate change.
We study human relationships with physical environments using interdisciplinary approaches grounded in environmental psychology. We examine the different ways people value environments, how people form attitudes towards environmental issues, what enables or constrains positive environmental behaviour, and how physical environments influence human well-being and function.
