About our research

Many of the greatest challenges facing humanity today are related to climate change, biodiversity loss, and sustainable food production. Our research directly tackles these challenges in that we study resource governance with a focus on deforestation and assess the effectiveness and social equity of policies that seek to address this form of land use change.

At the University of Victoria, we are grateful to work and live on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen peoples, specifically the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
