In the course of the resurgent issue of food security, the conversion of flower strips and fallow land, which are important for species protection and biodiversity, is being debated. Some stakeholders argue for intensifying the management of ecological priority areas, some of which have only recently been adopted to environmental measures would thus become ineffective. Which weighs more heavily here and how can we arrive at a solution that does justice to competing ideas? How can environmental policies be adapted to other societal challenges?

Welcome to the Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Food Policy

The specialty of the Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Food Policy is studying its three policy areas in an integrated way. This allows research and scientific analysis that reflects the manifold demands of society on today’s agricultural producers. Governance – intelligently and accommodated, in cooperation with non-academic actors designed coordination mechanisms – is crucial to using the resources in a sustainable way and to provide them. In the center of our research and science communication are therefore complex and interconnected environmental and societal challenges. Co-operative solutions and commons theory are thus focussed as promising approaches, next to traditional governance systems, such as market-mechanisms, hierarchical coordination, hybrid forms and polycentric approaches.

As societies face challenges like climate change, biodiversity loss, geo-political dependencies  and population growth, how can we develop forward-looking policies and other measures to help individuals and organizations make the adaptations that will be required? We draw on qualitative and quantitative methods to study formal and informal coordination mechanisms of complex socio-ecological-technical systems and develop methods to measure success of societal transformation.

Our research is relevant for today’s society, problem-oriented and is essential to communication between science, society and policy. We work interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary.
