The Nature of Transformative Change: Connecting Research and Practice

Forringelsen av naturen, inkludert økosystemfunksjoner og -tjenester, bidrar til et raskt tap av biologisk mangfold over hele planeten. Uten transformative løsninger så går vi en mørk fremtid i møte i følge forskning. Mye tyder på at vi mangler responser som monner. Forskere og praktikere forv...
