Transition to sustainability requires multiple changes at all levels of society. The urgency of the complex problems that we face in the Anthropocene requires problem-oriented science to transition to fair and sustainable societies.

Sustainability sciences illuminate various paths towards that future. My aim is to contribute to identify and answer questions that are relevant to our society for this transition.

BC3 Journal Article “The means determine the end – Pursuing integrated valuation in practice”

In environmental valuation, although it is well recognised that the choice of method heavily affects the outcome, little is known on how existing valuation methods actually elicit the different values. Through the assessment of real-life applications of valuation of nature, this study tracks down the suitability of 21 valuation methods for 11 value types and assesses the methodological requirements for their operationalization.

BC3 Journal Article “Towards an indicator system to assess equitable management in protected areas”

Aichi Target 11 (AT11), adopted by 193 Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 2010, states that protected areas (PAs) must be equitably managed by 2020. However, significant challenges remain in terms of actual implementation of equitable management in PAs. These challenges include, among others, the lack of a standardized approach to assess and monitor social equity and the difficulty of reducing social equity to a series of metrics. This perspective addresses these challenges and it proposes a minimum set of ten indicators for assessing and monitoring the three dimensions of social equity in protected areas: recognition, procedure and distribution.

BC3 Journal Article “Off-stage ecosystem service burdens: A blind spot for global sustainability”

The connected nature of social-ecological systems has never been more apparent than in today's globalized world. The ecosystem service framework and associated ecosystem assessments aim to better inform the science–policy response to sustainability challenges. Such assessments, however, often overlook distant, diffuse and delayed impacts that are critical for global sustainability.

BC3 Journal Article “Future impacts of drivers of change on wetland ecosystem services in Colombia”

Wetlands are among the most valuable ecosystems in the world due to their delivery of ecosystem services (ES), but they are particularly vulnerable to drivers of land-use change. However, little is known about how different wetlands respond to drivers of land-use change and how that impacts their delivery of ES.
