Biodiversity underpins the cultural and economic prosperity of Australia. The NERP Environmental Decision hub (NERP ED Hub) was funded through the Australian Governments National Environmental Research Program (NERP), for four years from 2011 to 2014. We carried out multidisciplinary, applied research in decision science for biodiversity conservation.
The research resulted in new tools, data, models and authoritative syntheses to enable Australian governments to make evidence-based decisions to protect biodiversity. Our research program was structured around delivering outcomes on each of the five NERP research priorities: values, ecosystems, threats, sustainable use and markets.”
Whilst the NERP ED Hub's time has drawn to a close, some of our work continues through a new federal initiative - the National Environmental Science Programme, Threatened Species Recovery Hub. A number of the NERP ED Hub researchers were, and continue to be involved in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions. We invite you to browse these web sites, and Decision Point, our free monthly magazine, to learn about our research.
Whilst this web site will no longer be updated, it will continue to be live until the end of 2022.
