Forschungsgebiete

  • Strengthening the Resilience of Rural Food Environments in the Context Disaster Risk and Climate Change in MOZambique (FEMOZ)
    The FEMOZ project aims at strengthening the resilience of rural food environments in the context of disaster risk and climate change in Mozambique. The “Food Environment” mediates the interactions between consumers and markets and influences consumer’s decisions. FEMOZ food environment conceptual framework consists of an external domain (including the dimensions of food availability, prices, markets and product’s properties, marketing, and regulation) and a personal domain (including accessibility, affordability, convenience, and desirability). Duration: 2021-2024

  • Land Use and Climate Change Interactions in Central Vietnam (LUCCi)
    The research project “Land use and climate change interactions in Central Vietnam” aimed at providing a scientific basis to develop optimized land use and water resources management strategies. To develop such strategies, interdisciplinary research methods are applied which consider both natural and social science approaches. On the one hand, greenhouse gas emissions from different land uses and land covers are quantified and on the other, possible climate change impacts on existing land uses are analysed and suitable adaptation strategies are developed. Data collection and scenario development is conducted in close collaboration with the national and local stakeholders and during the last phase of the project, these strategies are jointly implemented in the project region and offered to be transferred to further Central Vietnamese and other similar regions Duration: 2010 - 2015
