Behaviours and Decisions in Agriculture and Natural Resources

Program Lead: Professor Louisa Coglan

Effective and appropriate use of agricultural and natural resource is the foundation for a healthy economy and society. Our program employs interdisciplinary research methods to protect our environment, natural resources and agricultural sectors for future generations.

  • How do we develop green business models that facilitate behavioural adoption by agricultural producers?
  • How do international and domestic regulatory environments drive sustainable behaviour change?
  • What are the barriers and motivators for consumers to adopt ‘socially-unacceptable’ eco-friendly food products?
  • How can economic and social benefit for all users be maximised through shared natural resources?

These are some of the research questions being investigated by the BEST Centre.
