Work Package 4 - Informing and designing policies for sustainable landscapes
The WP agenda is rooted in qualitative and quantitative social research with a strong interdisciplinary character - between different social science disciplines and natural sciences (UPOL, OEKON, UPR,SUZOS, NSF).
The Work Package 4 deals with the following interconnected lines of research:
Research on societal perceptions, values, behavior, and policy options
- What are the societal implications and people’s values and perceptions of land use options?
- How to include knowledge on human behavior (e.g. farmers) into modelling and policy design?
- How to design effective and legitimate policy, financing, and governance instruments for sustainable land use and biodiversity conservation?
- Which governance instruments are needed?
- Governance, policy, and societal context for modeling / socio-economic indicators
Science-society-policy interfaces (SPIs)
- What are the knowledge and research needs from policy and practice?
- Which knowledge, tools and guidance can scientists provide to support natural resource policy and management?
- How can science-policy-processes be improved?
- How to enhance networks, interfaces, and civil society participation?
