TMG Research gGmbH
Berlin sowie Indien und Guatemala
At TMG. Töpfer, Müller, Gassner - ThinkTank for Sustainability, we work to empower sustainability transformations. Together with stakeholders from science, civil society, politics, and the private sector we develop innovative strategies for the implementation of sustainable development agendas. TMG Research gGmbH is implementing a research project on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) in Guatemala and India. The emphasis of the project is to identify scalable approaches to EbA and to influence the conditions to make up-scaling possible. This project’s Theory of Change foresees creating incentives for policy change by linking national level policy processes to the relevant global reporting processes. It further foresees to inform these national level processes through empowering locally-led research processes on workable EbA measures.
