Gregory Fuchs works as a Junior Researcher for Ecologic Institute. His work focuses on biodiversity, nature-based solutions and ecosystem-based governance. In particular, he focuses on understanding and effectively managing human pressures on species and habitats.
Gregory is engaged in project work under the European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (ETC-BD) regarding a Trans-European Nature Network and investigating the links between the circular economy and biodiversity. He is currently also working on the conservation and restoration of (degraded) ecosystems and in the field of marine governance (Implementation of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive; and developing Indicators of an Integrated German Marine Policy).
Prior to joining Ecologic Institute, Gregory Fuchs worked for the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on a marine conservation project, giving policy advice to the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). There he supported the facilitation of research partnerships with African countries via the MeerWissen initiative, as well as monitoring of policy processes (e.g. CBD Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework) and developed a portfolio analysis of GIZ projects using the IUCN Global Standard for Nature-based Solutions.
Gregory Fuchs studied Marine Environmental Management at the University of York (United Kingdom), focusing particularly on marine biodiversity conservation, coastal and fisheries management and marine protected areas. After having collected field data in the US Pacific Northwest, he wrote his diploma thesis on how a dam breach scenario would affect an endangered orca population's salmon food supply.
