Biodiversity Audit Approach - Stakeholder Consultation



How should we prioritise sites for biodiversity conservation effort?

Our team at UEA (University of East Anglia) is studying how we might rank the importance of individual sites within ecological networks. To help us, we are examining how conservation and land management professionals emphasise various 'criteria' that could be used to prioritise sites for funding or management.

We would value your contribution to this survey – survey completion should take no more than 10 minutes.

On each of the following four slides you will be presented with background information and then asked to score the relative importance between pairs of criteria (e.g. A v B, B v C, C v A). This approach gives more reliable results than scoring each independently.

This research was stimulated by work we are undertaking for Anglian Water. Results will be used to develop criteria weightings to help AW prioritise its sites for conservation management and a journal article exploring how preferences of conservation professionals affect prioritisation outcomes.

Your answers will be stored anonymously and securely - we will not be able to identify your responses or link them to any contact details.
