Chair of Economics of Sustainable Land Use and Bioeconomy
Head: Prof. Dr. Jan Börner
Our research and teaching profile concentrates on the assessment and evaluation of land-based environmental policy instruments and natural resource governance approaches in developing and industrialized countries. We use empirical and spatial modelling tools as well as qualitative methods to inform decision makers on how policies and governance mechanisms can be designed to address multiple sustainability goals under heterogeneous context conditions. Past and ongoing research projects focus on tropical forest governance and bio-based economic transformation.
