Private Land Conservation in a Dynamically Changing and Risky World (2021–2024)
Climate change, and the increasing risk of drought, heatwaves, and fire, have major implications for the design
and effectiveness of private land conservation programs. This project aims to generate new knowledge about the effect of climate change on adoption and outcomes of private land conservation agreements. It will use an
innovative social-ecological approach focused on koalas. Expected outcomes include an innovative framework to
help make decisions about private land conservation investments under climate change. This should provide
significant benefits for government and non-government organisations by providing solutions to climate-proof their
conservation investments on private land in a rapidly changing world.
