Slide background

Agricultural Development

Agriculture faces manifold challenges such as hunger and malnutrition, population growth and urbanisation, changing diets, mitigation and adaptation to climate change as well as increasing competition for soil, water and other resources. In addition, economic and social well-being of rural areas heavily depends on agricultural development.

Future-oriented, modern agriculture is expected to increase its productivity, preserve natural resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to be resource-efficient. Developing methods to better cope with these inherent and multiple challenges is highly complex. We offer expert knowledge mainly in agricultural economics and climate change economics as well as agricultural informatics to find and develop tailor-made solutions for agricultural production systems and markets around the globe to better cope with specific challenges.
