Research

IPS research on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture focuses on the role of coordinated policies and strategies aimed at safeguarding the continuity of Sri Lanka’s natural capital stock. These include innovation and adoption of right technical solutions, getting the structure of incentives right, and setting up effective institutions. The rising scarcity of land, issues of agriculture productivity, and food security, coupled with the risks and uncertainty associated with climate change impacts calls for an integrated approach that combines decisions taken at several areas of public policy.
