Julia Baker | Biodiversity Specialist
My main interests are the use of integrated conservation and development (ICD) to achieve protected area conservation through poverty alleviation. This includes understanding how people use natural resources for livelihood and wellbeing needs, and the role of governance in biodiversity conservation.

I worked with the International Institute for Environment and Development on their Darwin Initiative funded project ‘From research to policy: building capacity for conservation through poverty alleviation’, which was based at Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda.

Outside research, I work within industry with the aim to drive forward the biodiversity agenda, especially No Net Loss and Net Positive policies to embed conservation principles into construction design, planning and build.
