Functie­omschrijving

Increasingly intricate trade networks spanning our globe allow consumption in one part of the world to cause biodiversity and ecosystem services impacts elsewhere. Unfortunately, we have limited and incomplete tools for assessing the impacts of global supply chains on biodiversity and ecosystem services, which hampers identifying options for mitigating these impacts for policymakers, retailers and other stakeholders.

The Horizon Europe project BAMBOO (Biodiversity and trade: mitigating the impacts of non-food biomass global supply chains) aims at addressing this by 1) developing and applying impact assessment methods to quantify the impacts of global supply chains on biodiversity and ecosystem services, and 2) identifying potential leverage points for halting and reversing biodiversity loss now and under future scenarios.

Within the BAMBOO project, PBL is looking for a junior researcher to 1) contribute to the development and application of quantitative and spatially explicit models for assessing multiple ecosystem services, as part of the GLOBIO-ES modelling framework, and 2) contribute to the development of an impact assessment method for ecosystem services to be linked to Life Cycle Assessment and Input-Output models.
