The Agricultural Economics and Policy Group and the Grassland Sciences Group at ETH Zurich seek a postdoctoral researcher with a background in ecosystem service science or economic valuation to contribute to the research area of ecosystem service valuation. The position is offered within the project ‘Portfolio management to value grassland ecosystem goods and services in Swiss agriculture (VALUEGRASS)’.
On 30 November, Nature published a piece on the need to “Fix food metrics“. In the article, Pavan Sukhdev, Peter May and Alexander Mueller argue that “for sustainable, equitable nutrition we must count the true global costs and benefits of food production”, presenting a compelling narrative on the rationale and ambitions of TEEBAgriFood. The paper has already begun to turn heads and spark interest.
The TEEB Office therefore, extends the Call for Expressions of Interest to Sunday 11 December at midnight in order to allow researchers and practitioners in the agriculture and food / science-policy space the opportunity to get involved in this important initiative.
