Research Center for Environmental Economics

Forschungszentrum für Umweltökonomik (FZU)



The Research Center for Environmental Economics (Forschungszentrum für Umweltökonomie, FZU) brings together a dynamic group of economists who all work on solving pressing problems situated at intersection of the natural environment and the economy. We use theory, empirical, and experimental methods for better understanding the challenges of sustainable resource management and to provide relevant policy recommendations. Use this webpage as a platform to stay tuned in on our work or to explore the various projects we are involved in, many of them interdisciplinary.




The paper "Public in-kind relief and private self-insurance" by Timo Goeschl and Shunsuke Managi has been accepted for publication by the journal Economics of Disasters and Climate Change.

The paper “Voluntary action for climate change mitigation does not exhibit locational preferences” (previously titled “Does Mitigation Begin At Home?) by Timo Goeschl and Johannes Diederich has been accepted for publication by the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management.

Florian Diekert’s paper (joint with T. Schweder) “Disentangling Effects of Policy Reform and Environmental Changes in the Norwegian Coastal Fishery for Cod” has just been published in Land Economics.



Dr. Lisa Björk and Dr. Karlijn van den Broek have joined the Research Center as postdoctoral researchers. This team, combining environmental psychology (Karlijn) and environmental economics (Lisa), is developing the MULTITIP  project on managing complex lake ecosystems, which has received seed funding from the Federal Ministry for Education and Research BMBF.
