Environmental Policy (ENVPOL)

Environmental Policy

We conduct applied interdisciplinary research on land use change and natural resource use with a regional focus on Latin America, Afrika, and Europe. Our work often relies on qualitative and quantitative methods from environmental and agricultural economics and land system science. Ongoing projects look at the relationship between trade and biodiversity, the effects of public policies on tropical deforestation, and the role of bioeconomic innovation in sustainability transformations.
