Resource management, environment, landscape

The responsible management of natural resources requires the development and application of research-based knowledge. This research area deals with processes related to use, conservation and management of the natural environment, cultural landscapes and the cultural heritage in upland regions, inland and coastal areas. Research activities include commercialisation of nature based resources, use and conservation, climate change challenges, policies and public management.
