Leibniz Institute of Ecological and Regional Development
The IOER undertakes interdisciplinary research into the requirements for sustainable, environmentally compatible regional, urban, and landscape development. Institute researchers investigate interdependencies between land use and the natural environment, evaluate strategies, and develop approaches to sustainable spatial development in both the national context and on a European and international scale. Climate change and demographic change and their impact on future environmental and spatial development play a major role. The results of this research provide actors in politics and society with an important basis for planning and policy decisions. The IOER considers itself a partner for science and praxis and an element in the European research space with an international perspective.
