TEEB for Agriculture & Food

The TEEBAgriFood initiative seeks to provide a comprehensive economic evaluation of the “eco-agri-food systems” complex and demonstrate that the economic environment in which farmers operate is distorted by significant externalities, both negative and positive, and by a lack of awareness of dependency on naturalhuman and social capital.

Social innovations to protect soils and empower people

With leadership of national and local partners, we developed social innovations to overcome barriers to sustainable land management at the community level: insecure land access for women, youth and other vulnerable groups, land fragmentation and delivery of agricultural extension services and technology diffusion to resource poor farmers. Find out more about the results of the research project.

“Nutrition and soils in the 2030 Agenda: a contribution to the HLPF Thematic Reviews”

For the first time, the HLPF 2017 looks closely at a sub-set of SDGs under the theme: "Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world". The 2030 Agenda sets clear that its implementation rests on contributions by all stakeholders and a wide range of actors. Their insights should inform discussions at the HLPF to support a coherent global approach for national and local implementation of the SDGs.


Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security

As part of the Special Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, “One World No Hunger,” and in close collaboration with local and national partners in Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, and India, we support implementation of the GIZ global programme on “Soil Protection and Rehabilitation for Food Security.”


Fix Food Metrics

“For sustainable, equitable nutrition we must count the true global costs and benefits of food production”, urge Pavan Sukhdev, Peter May and Alexander Müller.
