Sustainably managing how humans interact with the natural environment is one of the most significant global challenges we face.

Using tools and concepts from Environmental Management, researchers in the school address major components of this challenge and have significant influence on shaping environmental decision-making.

The school works across terrestrial, freshwater, marine and coastal systems, from local to global scales.

Major strengths include: environmental impact assessment and environmental policy, and environmental management for mining, agriculture and rural industries.

The School is highly successful in having impact by working in partnership with industry, governments and other organisations to achieve transformational change in environmental practices and policies.
