Ecologic Institute developed the stories of Zornitza, Piotr, Alexandru, Beata and Ana to illustrate the different challenges and needs of climate change adaptation experts in a storytelling format. They show how these experts find specific data and information sets on Climate-ADAPT to assess climate change risks, develop policies and plans, adaptation solutions including using green infrastructure options. The stories show how the characters use Climate-ADAPT in a basic way, by following clear steps or using alternative options.
Plastic waste is a global environmental problem, the consequences of our increasing plastic use are visible worldwide. Therefore, water pollution (oceans, rivers, lakes, groundwater) and plastics in the environment are among the top environmental issues of concern to many people. However, many myths, misconceptions, and ambiguities circulate in the plastics debate. This 20-part poster series sets out to clarify some of these issues. Join us for a fact check – would you have known?
This infographic illustrates the total global mitigation potential of different types of Nature-based Solutions, shown by ecosystem. The scale of the total potential varies significantly for different ecosystems, i.a. because the total global area of the ecosystems is different.
This infographic was created for the study "Nature-based Solutions and Global Climate Protection". It has been developed by Öko-Institut and Ecologic Institute on behalf of the German Environment Agency. It is based on Reise et al. (2022): Nature-based Solutions and global climate protection. Climate Change 01/2022. Dessau-Roßlau. You can download a print version of the infographic.
This poster provides a basic introduction into the KOPOS project, which has been started in February 2020. In this "research design" poster guiding research questions, main ideas, and frameworks applied in the ongoing research process are presented. The poster was designed according to the project's style guidelines for the "Sustainable & Resilient Urban-Rural Partnerships Conference 2020" in Leipzig.
Over 90% of German rivers and streams are straightened, constricted, piped or interrupted by structures such as weirs or barrages. Restoration can improve the ecological status and attractiveness of water bodies. This interactive infographic lists and visualizes restoration measures for four different starting situations.
How is a topic such as microplastics socially problematised? How can consumers use plastics more sustainably? And what role do the interests and perceptions of different actors play in international plastics regulation?
These and other questions are posed by social scientists in a number of joint research projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research within the framework of the research focus "Plastics in the Environment". In this poster series, social science research from ten joint research projects is presented and first interim results are briefly and concisely summarised.
The poster summarizes and illustrates the REFRESH Food Waste Solution Contest. It was presented at the REFRESH Food Waste 2017 Multistakeholder Conference in Berlin. The poster is available for download.
