Long-Term Ecology, Biodiversity Conservation, and Environmental Stewardship Technologies


Herizo Andrianandrasana DPhil project involved an evaluation of the effectiveness of Community based Conservation (CBC) in mitigating threats, saving biodiversity, protecting ecosystem services and enhancing human well-being. The impact of CBC interventions carried out by Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust over 109 villages in five conservation areas in Madagascar since 1997 were retrospectively evaluated. This study used government records, household questionnaire surveys, remote sensing and species distribution modelling.
