Based on the “grand narrative” of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this presentation shows one example of how a single scientist’s contribution can have an impact for a better life for all. These sections are based on selected research articles and contain teaching book chapters, written by Andreas Melcher, to summarise the lessons learnt and the knowledge synthesised for students and the public.

Science rests on three pillars research, teaching and as well the third mission a direct scientific benefit for society. For this 16 published articles provide evidence of a trans‐ and interdisciplinary work which, as a whole, focuses on sustainable ecosystem management (SEM), that brought science into practice to provide rigorous evidence and concepts to support SEM and the SDGs.

Dr. Andreas Melcher is a researcher and the head of the BOKU Institute for Development Research focusing on sustainable socio-ecological transformation of the Global South.
