Professor Sutherland will talk on:
Conservation in a post truth world?
Professor Sutherland’s research is directed towards predicting the consequences of environmental change. He is known for his research on integrating science and policy, particularly in the area of evidence-based conservation. Over the last three decades his research has spanned several disciplines. Two of his key contributions have been the horizon scanning exercises to identify future priority issues and the 100 important questions in various disciplines: ecology, poverty prevention, global agriculture and food amongst others. He has also worked extensively on bird population ecology and the biodiversity impacts of agriculture. In his talk he will discuss how we can use evidence, including the website <http://www.conservationevidence.com> to underpin practice.
