The UN has declared 2005 to 2014 the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. However, education is often viewed as an unalloyed good and consequently, there have been few empirical studies on the costs and benefits of different forms of education within the fields of environmental conservation and sustainable development. Likewise, studies quantifying success of conservation and sustainable development projects are also limited. Without quantitative data on either of these aspects it is difficult to translate research into action, which is vital if conservation and sustainable development strategies are to succeed.
