Understanding decision-making through disciplinary theories

Thousands of research studies, position papers and articles draw attention to the threat of biodiversity loss, yet the issue is still not on the top of policy-maker’s priority list. Why? What will change the mindset of decision-makers and what factors have significant impact on decision-making?

The new report of PLANET4B collects and classifies a range of frameworks, theories, models, and concepts across a gradient of intrapersonal, interpersonal, and institutional levels of intervention to provide an inventory of behavioural- and social science theories. This can give insights about disciplinary assumptions about behaviour and decision-making that may influence biodiversity.
