Hi everyone,

There is an interesting article that was recently posted by Science Daily stating that nature conservation strategies announced by politicians rarely include behavioural insights. They often centre around awareness raising, which we know is often not sufficient to change behaviour. They also rarely identify target audiences. There are a range of behavioural tools mentioned in the article that are underutilised by governments (e.g. financial incentives). The article cites conservation strategies for pollinators as a case example. This is a short read, and well worth it. Check it out here
