The Centre for Sustainable Area Management (CeSAM) is a UIB initiative to consolidate and strengthen cross-disciplinary research and education to support evidence-based decisionmaking and sustainable mangement of our landscapes and oceans, biodiversity, and nature's benefits to people.

How we manage and use our landscapes and oceans is at the heart of both the climate crisis and the ongoing loss of biodiversity and ecosystem functions and services. The governance of both naural and human-dominated areas are both major drivers of the climate and nature crisis, and the key to sustainable solutions.
CeSAMs mission is to generate scientific knowledge, provide knowledge-based policy support and critique, and equip students with critical competences and skills for sustainability science.
These challenges are fundamentally crossdisciplinary and will require the development, use and combination of knowledge from a wide domain of disciplines in new ways.
