Trade-Offs and Opportunities in Sustainable Development

Strategies to reach different Sustainable Development Goals typically require the use of globally scarce land resources. As such, actions towards reaching different goals, such as food security, climate protection, or biodiversity conservation, are oftentimes mutually exclusive. In this research field, we analyze trade-offs between competing sustainable development strategies and explore possible ways of reconciling them.

Current projects contributing to this research field:

Evolution of trade-offs between food security, economic development, and biodiversity

Project lead: Felipe Melges

Coming soon.
