Our aim is to share and amplify campaigns, research and policy developments in a range of topics related to climate change, urban development and biodiversity protection. From the Global South and North.
Economy, Land and Climate Insight (ELCI) aims to provide a useful, central information hub for existing academic and policy research on the interactions between land, economy and climate change.
For example, on issues such as bioenergy or biodiversity, we have found it difficult to find a central resource where one can find detailed, up to date, disinterested research. We hope that ELCI will provide this and provide a gateway to further reading. We hope that academics, researchers, activists and policymakers will be able to contribute to the website and help inform readers around the world. We also hope journalists researching these topics will find the resources useful.
We are gradually building each topic out and hope eventually to cover relevant developments in sustainable economics and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) investing; providing links and comment on peer-reviewed papers as well as on policy debates and annoucements.
The site is powered by the team at Culmer Raphael, an ecological research and policy consultancy, founded in 2014 with a footprint in London and Brussels. We have received some support for this project from the European Climate Foundation. The rest is self-funded.
We are happy to receive submissions, suggestions and corrections.
