The Research Unit Sustainability and Global Change is devoted to multi-disciplinary research and education on human-induced environmental change that is either global in nature or pervasive across the world.
Our research aims to further the understanding of sustainable development and its environmental quality, economic efficiency and social equity.
We seek to cross-fertilize disciplines by building bridges between the natural and social sciences. Current research foci are the economics of climate change and the economics of land use. For the future, also an integrated view on both strands is anticipated.
