Australia has the worst extinction record of any developed nation. Biodiversity underpins the cultural and economic prosperity of Australia, but our interventions to protect this natural inheritance are proving inadequate. Furthermore, our environmental management efforts have not been managed in such a way that allows us to learn from our investment decisions. The ARC Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions will generate the fundamental knowledge and tools needed to make the best use of available resources for conservation. It will provide new techniques for assessing what resources are required and innovative ways for learning from our investment decisions.
