Bob is a biologist working across the natural and social sciences.
His research and interests include climatic- and societal driven change in ecosystem services and livelihoods, changes in the food-value chain (from agriculture and production to consumption), socio-economic scenarios and pathways, and climate services (how to make research more relevant, understandable and applicable). His geographical focus and projects on these topics covers the Himalayas, Norway and the Nordic countries and the Arctic.
VOM – Incentives for Measures for Food system Transition
Emissions of greenhouse gases must be reduced drastically and rapidly to keep the climate goals in the Paris Agreement within reach. The food system is an important source of emissions, with a major impact on land use, biodiversity, and health.

Climate and society
In the Climate and society group, we do research on and for transformation processes towards a low-emission and climatically adapted society. In doing so, we analyze interactions between relevant processes and actors at different scales in order to produce high-quality research that is applicable for various societal actors.
