In 2022 we made significant progress toward achieving our three key strategic goals. We are designing and implementing innovations to deliver positive impacts for people and nature.
On our way
While welcoming new team members, we further developed our organizational structure in 2022. Pursuing a shared strategy, the cooperation between teams has deepened across disciplines, topics, and regions.
Competence centers in 2022
Hub South America
We co-design land use models that contribute to forest protection as well as people’s livelihoods and offer true development alternatives to exploitative resource use.
Hub East Africa
We work to enable the coexistence of people and nature by maintaining the connectivity, functionality, and health of ecosystems and, in Madagascar, by harnessing the co-benefits of biodiversity hotspots for human wellbeing.
Hub Southeast Asia
We counter illegal resource extraction through local stewardship, and we work to maintain multifunctional landscapes that benefit agriculture, development, biodiversity, and society.
We work to promote sustainable human activities and people–nature interactions in ecologically sensitive areas, enable a transformation to sustainable energy systems in urban and rural regions , including carbon-neutral tourism, and encourage steps toward a more sustainable food system.
Shaping the future
We build bridges between scientific knowledge, political power, and action. By engaging with various stakeholders, we develop, test, and catalyze solutions that transform the relationship between people and nature.
