Profile

Profile

Professor Hens Runhaar (1971) is an Associate Professor of Greening of Public Policy at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University and an Extraordinary Professor of Governance of Agrobiodiversity at Wageningen University and Research.

Greening of public policy is about incorporating environmental objectives into sectoral policies and practices. Think of reducing CO2 emissions in the transport sector, planning for sustainable cities and policies for ‘nature-inclusive’ agriculture. Hens’ research addresses barriers to the greening of public policy, the contribution of environmental  knowledge and tools for ‘environmental policy integration’ to public policy greening and, more recently, institutional change and institutional entrepreneurship for green public policies.  

Hens has published 60 scientific papers and (co)edited three special journal issues. He is currently co-editing a fourth one for Environmental Science and Policy. He is initiator and coordinator of the international Working Group on Environmental Policy Integration of the Earth System Governance Taskforce on Conceptual Foundations. Next to his academic work Hens plays an active role in the practice of nature conservation and landscape restoration in the Netherlands (see CV).

Project:
NATURVATION NATure-based Urban innoVATION: New governance, business, financing models and economic impact assessment tools for sustainable cities with nature-based solutions (urban re-naturing)
01.11.2016 to 31.10.2020
General project description 

Nature-Based Solutions have the potential to limit impacts of climate change, enhance biodiversity and improve environmental quality while contributing to economic activities and social well-being. Examples are green roofs and city parks that limit heat stress, city lagoons that store water and permeable surfaces, vegetation and rain gardens to intercept storm water. To unlock the potential of nature based solutions for sustainable urban development, NATURVATION takes a transdisciplinary, internationally comparative approach to capture the multiple impacts and values of these solutions. Based on a comparison of 1000 nature based solutions across 6 cities, it identifies the most promising governance, business, finance and participation models and how to overcome the systemic conditions that currently limit their use. The real-world impact of NATURVATION is realized through co-design, co-development and co-implementation of new partnerships, knowledge, processes and tools required to build capacity, enable replication and foster cultural change.

Teaching experience
Hens lectures in Policy analysis (Master Sustainable Development) and supervises Master thesis students. In the past he has been involved in a variety of other courses at Bachelor and Master level (e.g., Sustainable Land Use, Bachelor Thesis, Research design Environmental governance). He continuously tries to link teaching and research, which regularly results in scientific publications produced with his students but also in the publication of teaching-related articles and teaching materials. In 2008 Hens obtained the Senior Qualification in Teaching, and in 2009 he successfully completed the Leadership in academic teaching course organised by the Centre of Excellence in University Teaching at Utrecht University. Between 2007 and 2013 Hens was coordinator of the bachelor programme in Environmental studies. Following this position, in 2013 Hens was responsible for drafting the self evaluation report for the review of the Environmental studies programme ('visitatie'). In 2016 he served on the board of an evaluation committee that reviewed four BSc and MSc programmes at Delft University of Technology.

Master theses topics I would like to explore with students 

I am looking for M.Sc. students who want to write their Master thesis about one of the subjects below:

Enhancing biodiversity in agricultural landscapes through more effective governance

Agricultural landscapes offer many opportunities for biodiversity. Yet due to intensification, in many countries biodiversity is in decline. My research focuses on the governance of biodiversity in agricultural landscapes: public policies such as agri-environment schemes, but also voluntary initiatives of (collectives of) farmers, work conducted by NGOs and local citizen volunteers, and market parties that are starting to pay attention to biodiversity in agricultural landscapes. How do these initiatives work and interact? What seems to work best: focusing on target species or on rich landscapes? What about side-effects - e.g. new human-wildlife conflicts in case of successful restoration of particular species? And what innovative business models allow farmers to integrate biodiversity in their farming practices? Case studies in the Netherlands as well as abroad should help addressing these questions. I am particularly interested in comparisons between the governance arrangements, preferably in an international context: what works, where and why? What is needed for a more effective governance of 'agrobiodiversity'?

Co-creating useful knowledge for managing biodiversity and agricultural landscapes

Effective nature conservation by farmers requires knowledge about what measures work from an ecological perspective but also how these measures can be integrated in agricultural practices and how these measures can be made productive in terms of either reducing costs or raising additional revenue. Co-creating knowledge is required in order to effectively tap from both scientific expertise and local knowledge. But how to organise such processes and what are success conditions? This project will build on a M.Sc thesis that analysed four different systems for producing knowledge for nature conservation by farmers.

Managing human-wildlife conflicts

The effective protection of endangered species and the co-existence of humans and wildlife often requires support from local stakeholders. In a recent paper I conducted a framing analysis of badgers in the Netherlands over the last 100 years, in order to explain their persecution until the 1960s and their protection afterwards. A similar analysis was conducted together with a student on how Dutch people think about the return of wolves in the Netherlands. I am looking for students who are interested in conducting analyses of the framings that underlie human-wildlife conflicts, in order to provide a better understanding of the nature of these conflicts, and ways in which they can be mitigated or avoided. Together we can identify interesting cases (particular species in a particular country). The case of the Dutch badger population has my specific interest – with the increase in this population, a growing number of farmers state to suffer from damage by badgers whereas ‘urbanising badgers’ are considered problematic by some but not all citizens.

Invasive alien species

Over the last few decades, the number of invasive alien species (IAS) has increased worldwide. Since IAS can have negative impacts on biodiversity, human health, and the economy, IAS policies and management schemes have been implemented for an early detection of IAS, for their eradication or, if that is not possible, for controlling their populations. Yet these policies and schemes have not been sufficient to tackle the problem. Public support among stakeholders seems to be one of the problems. What lessons can be learned from successful or unsuccessful attempts to tackle the problem of IAS? How do different stakeholders perceive the problem?
