Projects

 

Capacity Building in Carbon Forestry (CBCF)
04.2019 – 10.2021
Funding: Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL)
The project supports forestry experts from developing countries in getting access to trainings in the field of sustainable forest management approaches that are aimed at conserving / increasing the carbon content in forest ecosystems (Carbon Forestry). As part of the project, selected participants receive a scholarship as a financial support for their participation in the course ”Carbon Forestry”. The course is offered annually by the Chair of Silviculture of Freiburg University.
 
Forestry Higher Education Advancement in Laos  (FORHEAL)
04.2019 – 10.2020

Funding: EU Erasmus + Program
Main goal of the project is to strengthen the forest-related higher education system in Laos to  improve domestic capacity to sustainably manage forests for the benefit of the people and the environment, while at the same time enabling Laos to effectively respond to the demands and opportunities of international processes (e.g. Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Agreement on Climate Change).

"High Ambitions“ jenseits von REDD+: Wege zur Involvierung privater Akteure in Forest Landscape Restoration
04.2017 - 12.2018
Funding: Federal Ministry for Research and Education, Program: „Beitrag zum IPCC Sonderbericht 1,5 Grad Erwärmung“
project partners Perspectives (gGmbH), Professur Forst- und Umweltpolitik, Seminar für Wissenschaftliche Politik)
Sub-project in TABEK: Transformative Ambitionssteigerung - Der Beitrag effektiver Klimapolitikinstrumente

Einbindung von REDD+ in das neue Klimaabkommen der UNFCC und Annäherungspotentiale zur CBD
10.2013 - 05.2016
Funding: Bundesamt für Naturschutz (BfN) with funds by Bundesministeriums für Umwelt, Naturschutz, Bau und Reaktorsicherheit (BMUB)
Das Vorhaben verfolgt das übergeordnete Ziel, die Kohärenz und Konsistenz verschiedener parallel laufender Prozesse und Institutionen in der internationalen Waldpolitik wissenschaftlich zu analysieren und die Auftraggeber mit diesen Analysen bei der Gestaltung der relevanten Prozesse zu unterstützen. Im Vordergrund stehen dabei die Entwicklungen zu einem REDD+ Mechanismus unter der UNFCCC bis Ende 2015, aber auch andere für den Themenkomplex Waldnutzung und -schutz in Entwicklungsländern relevante Prozesse innerhalb der fragmentierten Institutionenlandschaft (Fokus auf UNFCCC, CBD, ForestEurope / UNFF).

Integrating Valuations, Markets and Policies for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (INVALUABLE, BioDiVersa)
01.2012-06.2015
Marked-based instruments (MBIs) offer efficient alternatives for classical governance approaches in biodiversity policies. However, considering the high complexity, uncertainty and stakes of the issue political decisions need to take into account not only of the best available science but also the preferences and values in society. The sub-project Managing Knowledge and Uncertainty at the Science-Policy Interface departs from this necessity to better integrate science and policy and demonstrates how it can be achieved in practice.

Reshaping Science-Policy Interactions in Climate Policy: International Stock-Taking and Lessons for Austria (ReSciPI)
01.2011-12.2013
ReSciPI strives to provide policy-relevant insights on how climate science and climate policy can be integrated in a more productive way. The project builds on an innovative theoretical approach that clearly goes beyond mere “knowledge transfer” and conceptualizes science-policy interactions in an iterative and reflexive manner (“knowledge brokerage”, KB).
Partner: InFER – Institute of Forest, Environmental, and Natural Resource Policy, Universität für Bodenkultur Wien (BOKU, overall coordination)

Governing the climate across the science-state-society divide: Experiences from the REDD+ Partnership and climate services.
11.2011 – 11.2015

Dissertation project/ doctoral thesis at Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg.

Protection of forests under global biodiversity and climate policies
10.2010-12.2012
Funding: Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN)/Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU)
This project analysed the potential risks and opportunities of different REDD+ options regarding the CBD goals for forest biodiversity conservation. Based on the analyses, suggestions were developed on how to create the biggest possible synergies between biodiversity goals and the implementation of REDD+.
