The Research Group

The Sustainable Development Research Group analyzes the impact of climate change on households in developing and transition economies. The researchers also evaluate the effectiveness of policy measures designed to strengthen the resilience of households. The primary methodological toolkit is microeconometrics, with researchers regularly collecting their own household survey data. The group works closely with local, national, and international researchers and contributes to the survey design of partner institutions. One of the group’s key goals is acquiring long-term and large-scale research projects that are funded, for example, by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Volkswagen Foundation.
