Researcher (biodiversity), Natural Resources
The Natural Resources research group works to support and shape fairer, more sustainable governance of natural resources by generating the evidence needed to improve key policies, institutions and legal frameworks.
Our priority is to increase local control and management of natural resources and other ecosystems by working in partnership with networks and organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Through research, dialogue and action, we raise awareness of the key role that small-scale producers and local people play in maintaining their resources, and help identify tools and tactics to strengthen their capacity.
Key programmes of the group's work can be found below underneath the staff listing, while all projects can be found within biodiversity, fisheries, food and agriculture, forests, land acquisitions and rights, natural resource management, and water.
IIED's Natural Resources research group is led by director James Mayers.
