Environment & governance

Birds eye view of rice paddies

A cross-disciplinary approach to protecting our planet

The UNSW Environment & Governance Research Group brings together leading international researchers in environmental politics, law and policy, biodiversity, climate security, food systems and environmental ethics. Our work has a common focus on improving law, public policy and international cooperation to protect ecosystems and manage the impact of human-induced environmental change. Having entered the Anthropocene – the epoch of dramatic human impacts on the Earth’s ecology and systems – our work crosses disciplines and charts paths for improved governance. We aim to support ecological sustainability and key human interests in health, justice and security into the long-term future.  

The UNSW Environment & Governance Research Group is led by Professor Anthony Burke.
