The ‘Sustainability Assessment and Agricultural Management’ Research Division works in an interdisciplinary and system-oriented manner. The Division’s research projects aim to better understand and anticipate operational decisions and their effects on economic, ecological and social aspects. The social developments and effects of changed constraints and operational decisions are analysed and recommendations are derived. Based on the comprehensive evaluation of process-engineering, operational or sectoral developments, the further development of all pillars of sustainability is a further important concern of the Research Division aimed at improving the performance of the Swiss agricultural sector. In addition, the farm-, sector- and product-focused models and tools are further developed in various interdisciplinary research projects in such a way that further aspects of the agriculture and food system can be depicted and evaluated with the aim of providing nutrition and health policy recommendations.
