Conservation Data Justice

Project Details


Conservation prioritisation, political ecology and data justice: these are the three areas covered by conservation data justice, a new research field that is yet to be widely considered by political ecologists. In this context, the EU-funded CONDJUST project will interrogate conservation data and models, and explore the epistemic communities producing them. Its aim is to develop new theories of socially just, data-driven conservation. The project’s work is timely, considering new global targets to safeguard 30 % of the planet for conservation by 2030. Specifically, CONDJUST will examine the sources of bias and distortion in conservation data used in global prioritisation work. It will also use data justice thinking in new analyses of biodiversity conservation.
