Environmental management is an intrinsic part of sustainable development, concerning itself with meeting and improving provision for human needs, and balancing demands on a sustainable basis whilst enhancing natural habitats and ecosystems. The field also studies the specific policies, regulations and laws that govern the use of both natural and economic goods and services. Our work cuts across different environmental domains such as air, water, resource use and rural and urban land management, and looks at how these aspects can also be managed in an integrated manner to maximise benefits for people.  This process requires an understanding of values and trade-offs that decision makers and society must make regarding the environment, and understanding and managing both human activities and the natural environment is integral.

Our research involves many stakeholders (governments, resource users, NGOs, private companies etc.), works across a range of spatial scales (local, national, global) and serves diverse goals.  Research in this theme therefore requires an interdisciplinary perspective; this is reflected in the expertise of staff at CEP, where economists, ecologists, planners, lawyers, psychologists (and many more) collaborate in tackling contemporary environmental management questions.
