About the FNU
The Research Group Sustainability and Global Change belongs to the Research Unit Sustainability and Climate Risks. We are devoted to multi-disciplinary research and education on human-induced environmental change that is either global in nature or found in regions around the world.
Our research seeks to identify options for sustainable development and improve the understanding of its dynamics, including the key components ‘environmental quality’, ‘economic efficiency’, and ‘social equity’.
Further, we pursue cross-fertilization between disciplines by building bridges between the natural and social sciences. Our current research foci include the economics of climate change and the economics of land use.
