Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Andree Ekadinata joined the Ecosystem Services and Management Program (ESM) at IIASA as a Research Scholar in October 2017. His tasks are to contribute to the adjustment of various ESM models (i.e. GLOBIOM, G4M, EPIC, BGC-MAN) to the needs of modeling restoration of degraded area. Moreover, as a remote sensing expert, he is also responsible to link the models with crowd-empowered mapping techniques to identify and assess impact of restoration activities, and adjust relevant models with in–situ biophysical and social economic datasets.
Mr. Ekadinata holds a BSc in forest management and an MSc in regional planning from Bogor Agricultural Institute, Indonesia. He has 14 years of research experience in land use planning, land use change analysis, quantification of ecosystem services, climate change, REDD+ and modeling, mostly through his engagement with the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in Bogor/Indonesia since 2002. One of his latest projects includes the development of a land-use planning tool called “Land Use Planning for Multiple Environmental Services” (LUMENS) to analyze the trade-offs between development planning at sub-national level and the potential reduction of greenhouse gas emission as a basis of negotiation support toward low emission development strategies at the local level.
Before joining IIASA, he lead the GIS and remote sensing team at the World Agroforestry Centre-Southeast Asia Regional Office conducting land cover mapping and land cover change analysis. Among the topics addressed through the mapping activities are: Carbon footprint from oil palm plantations in Indonesia, estimation of greenhouse gas emissions in Indonesia and wall-to-wall mapping to analyze land transformation across South East Asia.
