We take a targeted and case-specific approach to the pressing global problems of water shortage, climate change, environmental destruction, loss of biodiversity, and land degradation.
Our research is transdisciplinary: We integrate the various interests and knowledge of stakeholders into the research process. This way we help ensure that problem-solving concepts are better accepted and implemented in the field.
In finding sustainable solutions to concrete conflicts we take into account social and economic as well ecological conditions. Social ecology provides the theoretical basis for this work.
