Balancing use and protection of natural resources

Balancing use and protection of natural resources

We study balances and potential trade-offs regarding the use and conservation of natural resources from a broad societal perspective.

Sustainable use of natural resources varies by nature type, species, and human activities and interests. Our work aims to support and further develop effective management strategies utilizing a holistic approach considering a range of ecological factors and societal priorities.

Key words: nature conservation; species conservation; forestry; socio-ecological systems; political ecology; vacation-home development; recreational use; renewable energy sources.
