Between 2013 and 2015, I was  coordinator for the REDD+ research network at the Wageningen University. This network is known as REDD@WUR.Over 80 researchers at the Wageningen University are working on REDD+ related issues and this network is in need of further development. 

During my coordinator work, I engaged in REDD+ debates at various levels. I supervised master students on local REDD+ pilot projects and I observed the negotiations at the UNFCCC Conferences of Parties. Additionally, I was involved in publications on the current state of REDD+ and on how REDD+ and climate mitigation needs to be seen in a wider perspective (forthcoming).
