Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Esther Boere joined IIASA's Ecosystems Services and Management (ESM) Program as a Research Scholar in January 2015. Her current scientific interests include the analysis and modeling of driving factors of (agricultural) land use change. At IIASA, she will contribute to developing typologies and poverty analyses on smallholder farming in Ethiopia, which will subsequently be implemented in the global economic land use model GLOBIOM.
Dr. Boere received her PhD from both Wageningen University and the Agricultural Economic Research Institute (LEI). Focusing on land use changes, accounting for the role of the EU’s CAP-reform, she developed econometric (panel data and duration) and mathematical programing models. During her PhD studies, she spent a summer working on insurance modeling at the University of Victoria, Canada. Prior to her PhD she completed a master’s degree in Development Economics, spending 6 months in Vietnam designing alternative Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES)-programs.
