The Marxan Advisory committee

Earth’s surface is finite, meaning that every decision we make about lands and waters must be made as effectively as possible. Under emerging international and domestic climate and biodiversity commitments, nations must build marine, freshwater, and terrestrial conservation plans. This requires balancing biodiversity conservation with the growing demands for energy, infrastructure, food and economic recovery. To ensure Marxan is ready to assist these needs now and in the future, we are proud to announce the Marxan Advisory Committee. Our advisors are world leaders in conservation planning theory, practice and achieving conservation outcomes on the ground. Their research and commitment to biodiversity conservation strongly represent Marxan’s core values and principles of free, open, fair and equitable access to decision-support tools.
