These are the first projects and partners we have selected, after evaluating the regeneration potentials both for people and environment. And more projects are in the pipeline. We’re happy of the fact that our advisory service is welcomed and we are looking forward to further win-win partnerships.

“In 2022, it is believed that the combined 3C factors – COVID-19, conflicts and climate – can have a devastating effect on food security at European and global level.” Virginia Campeanu, Institute for World Economy

Agriculture can either be part of the problem or the solution, with regard to landscape degradation, biodiversity loss and climate change. Agroforestry systems can not only increase yields, but also withstand weather extremes, regulate water cycles, sequester carbon and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Hence, they are key for both – to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

The ecological transition requires a broad range of services and innovations. Which opens various opportunities for private and public organizations, as well as for regenerative start-ups. However, the development of economic solutions should also consider non-monetary driving forces, such as cultivating emotional balance and organizational resilience.

This is our general perspective, regarding the growing turbulence of the world we live in. If you think, it’s high time to co-develop your own strategy towards resilience and abundance, contact us today.

Holistic crisis management: Edhen experts step in to solve problems, large and small. By taking a holistic approach to managing risks and targeted resilience management. Towards identifying opportunities and solutions, attuned to your specific needs and context.
