This module provides an overview of the causes and consequences of biodiversity loss from the landscape- to global-scale, alongside the strategies being adopted to mitigate and reverse these effects. Students will learn about the impacts of climate change, pollution, habitat loss and agriculture (incl. land sharing vs. sparing), as well as national, regional and international policies and frameworks (e.g. EU Biodiversity Strategy, CITES, IUCN and Nagoya). Students will be trained in how to evaluate the quality of data leading to evidence-based recommendations, and in grant writing for real-world projects. Students will also examine the science and challenges underpinning policy development, through a series of case studies, such as illegal wildlife trade and plastic pollution. Interactions with practitioners will offer direct insights into the pressing threats to biodiversity and its conservation.
