We do not have sufficient data to adequately describe the integrated socio-ecologicalsystems that support us. It is prohibitively expensive to collect enough data to describe all,so it is important to think strategically about how to (i) use the information we do have and (ii) prioritise the collection of new data. We aim to help by finding efficient ways of improving the information that is available for policy-makers to generate better human–nature outcomes.

Additional Information:

We have already begun to focus on points (1) and (2), working with partners until end 2022 to add additional variables to our dataset that relate to climate, water, aquatic biodiversity and threatened species. We will then analyse the data to identify groups of regions that share similar social, economic, and biophysical characteristics and/or regions that similar locational characteristics (e.g. priority places, protected areas); and to identify regions that have characteristics most suited to particular planning approaches (that focus on conservation/ecological systems). Our process for identifying which data gaps need to be filled to address specific management projects could be used in a wide variety of future projects, helping to ensure that the information available is both necessary and sufficient to support environmental policy-makers improve human–nature outcomes.
