DPhil student James Walsh co-authored the paper 'Delivering behavioural change at scale: What conservation can learn from other fields' published in the journal Biological Conservation.
Key points from the paper:
- Conservation should look to learn lessons from other fields of public policy.
- Interventions must take account of the psychological foundations of behaviour.
- Conservation policymaking should be informed by a rigorous evidence base.
- New institutions and systems are required to achieve change at scale.
- An ethical approach to adopting conservation behavioural programmes is required.
