Detlef van Vuuren works on integrated assessment of global environmental change and has acted as (coordinating) lead author in publications of IPCC, the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment and UNEP's Global Environmental Outlook. In RESPONSES, he coordinates the Scenario work-package.

"I hope RESPONSES will allow for an integration of knowledge among the different disciplines, institutes and work-packages in order to better understand the relationships between climate change, mitigation and adaptation"

Jelle van Minnen
Jelle van Minnen has a long experience in the field of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation at global, European and national scales. In RESPONSES he contributes to the Biodiversity work-package, especially assessing impacts and defining adaptation options.

"I hope that we will be able to define concrete options and policies, useful for the European Commission and member states."

Rob Alkemade
Rob Alkemade works on global biodiversity modelling at PBL. In RESPONSES he works in the Biodiversity work-package on reviewing policy options that benefit biodiversity and evaluate them in scenario analyses.

"I hope to learn which policy scenarios for mitigation of and adaptation to climate change are most beneficial for the biodiversity in Europe."
