|Start date||As soon as possible|
The research group of the Chair in Human Geography with a Focus on Human-Environment-Relations (Prof. Matthias Garschagen) at the Department of Geography works on risk, adaptation and transformation in the context of environmental hazards, climate change, urbanization and other dimensions of global change. The section develops, tests and applies inter- and transdisciplinary methods for the assessment of future development paths and risk trends as well as for the multi-criteria evaluation of climate change adaptation and transformation, particularly in cities and newly urbanizing areas. While pursuing a global perspective, the section’s empirical research is particularly focused on Europe, Asia and Africa. Next to fundamental research, the section is keen to deliver scientific knowledge that is of high practical and policy relevance and provides decision support. The section therefore collaborates closely with decision makers and stakeholders from the local to the global level, e.g. urban administrations, United Nations programs and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
