GLRPPR Sector Resource: Behaviour and behaviour change: A literature review

Behaviour and behaviour change: A literature review

The concepts of behaviour and behaviour change have recently emerged as core areas of interest for central government. This has led to a number of departmental initiatives, particularly in relation to health, travel, energy-use and the environment. The Social and Economic Research Group at Forest Research has undertaken a review to summarise research and practice relating to behaviour in order to identify lessons and key areas of interest for forestry. The review draws on academic research, policy documents and evaluations of behaviour focused interventions to understand this broad topic area and to illustrate how behavioural approaches might be applied within the forestry sector. The review also outlines gaps in research and evidence.
