The role of humans and society

 

Land is vital to society and often the object of conflicts due to conflicting land use interest. It provides the basis for healthy food, renewable resources, recreation, biodiversity and ecosystem services such as pollination and flood protection. Because not everything can be achieved in parallel, a responsible and forward-looking approach to competing interests plays a central role. Solutions must be suitable for the respective landscape and jointly developed with all relevant actors.

What do we want to achieve with our research?

​We want to ...

... understand how and why agricultural landscapes are changing and how sustainable development can be promoted in a targeted manner.

... better understand the interplay between technological and social innovation processes. Policy recommendations from the combination of law, market and voluntary action can thus be better developed.

... better meet social requirements in the development of sustainable land use with the help of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity.

... develop future options for agricultural landscapes that accurately address social change.

What are the key challenges to be solved?

Challenge: How can we understand the complexity with which the different changes in agricultural landscapes are brought about?

Our solution: We work in transdisciplinary constellations, involve different groups of actors in our research work from the outset (co-design) and then evaluate the resulting changes in results, recommendations and implementation activities.

Challenge: Decisions we make today on land use will only take effect in the future if other framework conditions have also changed. How can we anticipate these developments in order to make appropriate decisions?

Our solution: We analyze the possible developments of important factors influencing land use in advance, such as the demand for agricultural products, population trends, technological changes and the climate. In doing so, we account for the regional context of change in agriculture, landscape and society. This leads us to scenarios for future development paths in land use.

Challenge: What can new Instruments and approaches for incentive systems look like that not only address agricultural production, but also adequately reward commitment to biodiversity, clean water and recreation?

Our solution: We explain the values and motives, preferences and interests of the various actors and show which roles civil society, private or even state actors play in existing approaches. We use this knowledge to develop innovative approaches to land use management together with relevant actors and to improve existing agri-environmental policies.
