Dr Joost Vervoort

Senior Researcher, TRANSMANGO and SUSFANS

Profile

Joost Vervoort is the Scenarios Officer for the CGIAR Research Programme 7, Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). He is driving multi-stakeholder scenario development for the future of food security, livelihoods and environments for East Africa, West Africa, South Asia, South East Asia and Latin America, working extensively with a wide range of regional actors. The CCAFS scenarios work combines these stakeholder perspectives with economic modelling to explore the long-term implications of multiple socio-economic scenarios combined with climate scenarios. The regional scenarios are used to guide policies, investments and institutional change at national and regional levels. For more information visit ccafs.cgiar.org/scenarios.

In 2014, Joost will start as a work package leader on the TransMango project, funded by the European Commission (FP7). TransMango will focus on plausible futures of the European food system in a global context. In TransMango, Joost will collaborate with ECI food systems research leader John Ingram on scenarios for transformative policy.

Joost has a PhD (Production Ecology and Resource Conservation) from Wageningen University (2007-2011), in science communication and stakeholder engagement through scenarios and other approaches to sense-making in and navigating through complex systems.
