  • The incorporation of the natural environment within decision making;
  • Identifying the best uses of and investments in scarce natural resources;
  • Bringing the complexities of real world locations into analyses, conservation and society;
  • Impacts of climate change on environments and land use;
  • People and pollution;
  • Agricultural and environmental economics and wellbeing.

LEEP places great emphasis upon its engagement with knowledge users in government and the business sector, delivering high impact in translating research into policy and investment action.
The Institute is developing a teaching programme designed to deliver the interdisciplinary researchers and decision makers of tomorrow. This programme is intended to equip students with the range of highly marketable skills required to ensure excellent employability into the future.
