Sabine Reinecke is PostDoc researcher at the chair of Forest and Environmental Policy at Freiburg University working also as Knowledge Coordinator for the Global Landscapes Forum (GLF). Her research interests include environmental and climate governance in forests (esp. REDD+ and FLR), sustainable development, environmental ethics and the sociology of scientific knowledge. She has been involved in various (inter)national, transdisciplinary projects on forest-climate and biodiversity governance concerned with questions of how governance arrangements can be improved or better integrated. Her PhD studies, for instance, investigated how different new modes of governance in the area of climate change work jointly together from international to local levels. She is a sociologist and political scientist by training and holds a second Master’s degree in Environmental Governance as well as working experience in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America on land use change and sustainable resource use related to issues of water scarcity and desertification in (semi)arid regions.
