RIEL works across four cross-cutting areas of research – Biodiversity Conservation, Communities and Livelihoods, Savanna and Arid Ecology and Water and Catchments.

We have extensive scientific and technical expertise in these areas as well as excellent laboratory and field capabilities.

Our research in these areas is achieving positive impacts for, for example, threatened species, ecosystem services, industry, employment, climate change mitigation/adaptation, and community health and wellbeing.
