Jenny Tröltzsch has been working at Ecologic Institute since 2010. As a Senior Fellow, her work focuses on cost-benefit evaluation of environmental goods and services, climate adaptation, climate change mitigation and regional bioeconomies. In addition, she coordinates the Institute's activities on adaptation issues. Jenny works in German and English and has a basic knowledge of Russian, Finnish and Polish.
Jenny Tröltzsch works in projects on economic assessment of climate adaptation actions on the local, national and supranational (European Union, EU) level, e.g. in projects CO-designing the Assessment of Climate CHange costs (COACCH) and Economics of Climate Change Adaptation in Europe (ECONADAPT). She works on participatory and co-design approaches to integrate stakeholder engagement in research, e.g. in Bio-based Strategies and Roadmaps for Enhanced Rural and Regional Development in the EU (BE-Rural) and Making Society an Active Participant in Water Adaptation to Global Change (BeWater). Additionally, she has developed indicators for the assessment of climate protection and adaptation, and has identified best practice examples of adaptation measures and strategies.
