Current KE @ ICCS activities
Prue commenced her three year Knowledge Exchange fellowship in January 2016. During 2016, Prue will begin developing case studies with the KE @ ICCS business partners to address some of their unique biodiversity challenges. These case studies are currently in development phase, with work likely to commence later in 2016. Once completed, the outcomes of these business case studies will be widely communicated to contribute to cross-sector engagement and learning around how conservation science can help address business & biodiversity challenges. Other work that Prue will be undertaking during 2016 includes:
- Undertaking a review of business case studies that illustrate business challenges, and best practice examples, around measuring, evaluating and reporting on corporate biodiversity performance.
- Undertaking research into whether the concept of no net loss of biodiversity can be applied to minimise impacts in the marine environment; and,
- Working with conservation and social scientists to develop guidance to assist conservation scientists navigate the ethical implications of working in controversial areas of conservation.
