Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - IRI THESys

Pontificia Universidad Javeriana: Collaboration on biodiversity and hydrological research

Prof. Tobias Krüger and Dr. Jaime García Márquez established a strategic relationship between Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá, Colombia (PUJ).

Within their research group Transformations and uncertainties of land-water systems, research group leader Prof. Tobias Krüger and his postdoctoral researcher Dr. Jaime García Márquez established a strategic relationship between Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU) and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá, Colombia (PUJ).

The new cooperation aims for student and researcher exchanges, project proposals and joint publications. The research is mainly focused on biodiversity and hydrological research, for example on social uncertainties of the ecosystem services concept or the development of an integrative and interdisciplinary approach to tackle water security issues and ecosystem services conservation under post-conflict scenarios.

As a first concrete collaboration between IRI THESys and PUJ partners, the doctoral project of Letícia Lima, who has joined IRI THESys in October 2014 with a CNPq scholarship from Brazil, investigates the effectiveness and uncertainties of the Payments for Watershed Services in Colombia.

Following a successful three day workshop that took place in September 2014 at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Tobias Krüger gave the prestigious Javeriana Lectio Inauguralis at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana on 6th February 2015, speaking about "Current progress in transdisciplinary water research".
