The University of Georgia

The Center for Integrative Conservation Research engages in research and teaching on conservation and sustainability. We promote an integrative approach that utilizes insights and methodologies from across the social and ecological sciences. Through our research, teaching, and support of the Integrative Conservation Ph.D. Program, we seek to emphasize the social and ecological trade-offs that are associated with managing complex systems and responding to contemporary environmental challenges, and to engage with policy and practitioner communities to support effective and equitable solutions to these trade-offs.

CICR was established in January 2007 with the support of a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
