Zugang zu Förderung
Environment, Culture, Sustainability
Safeguarding prosperity and quality of life for future generations is a central task of politics. In order to fulfil this task we require an understanding of how the economy and society function, of the factors that affect societal and cultural development, and also of how they interact with the natural environment.
Global Change, Climate and Environmental Protection
There are as yet no long-term answers or solutions to global challenges such as loss of biodiversity, soil degradation, climate change, the increasing scarcity of raw materials and water, population growth, demographic change and the resulting societal consequences. Research must make significant contributions here.
Humanities and social sciences: knowledge for cultural and social orientation
The humanities and social sciences provide a wealth of knowledge on cultural, economic and social developments and social structures, thereby making significant contributions to aid decisions on current issues and challenges.
Life, nature, diversity
There are numerous ethical, social, ecological and increasingly also economic reasons to protect biological diversity worldwide. All these reasons are based on one fundamental insight: biological diversity is not only an invaluable treasure, it is also a fundamental condition for human existence. With its National Strategy on Biological Diversity the German government has undertaken a long term obligation, at national and international level, to conserve biological diversity and to exploit it sustainably. The implementation of the strategy is supported by the
German government's Biological Diversity programme
. The programme office at the project management agency DLR has been tasked by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation with managing this programme.
