Water and nature

The competence team aims at interdisciplinary understanding of current challenges of nature protection. We focus on nature-based solutions in urban areas and in the countryside and sustainable forest management. We combine knowledge of economics, ecology, geography, law and other disciplines with practical experiences of land owners and managers. We seek for the sustainable local natural resource protection. Based on CEA, CBA and RIA evaluations we recommend effective environmental policy instruments at different levels. Within research projects, we cooperate with international academia, experts and practitioners. We are also members of different international associations and initiatives, such as Ecosystem Services Partnerhip, International Water Resources Association or International Academic Association on Planning, Law and Property rights.
