The ITT is an applied research and teaching institute with a problem oriented and stakeholder centered research strategy. Its research follows a holistic approach, which jointly considers biophysical, environmental, economic and social issues. In its research structure, the ITT integrates different disciplines and methods in adequate platforms for the analysis and development of natural resources management solutions. The main regional focuses are the countries of the Tropics and Subtropics. The ITT research program is in-line with the major challenges identified by leading research and international cooperation agencies e.g. BMBF, BMZ, BMU, GIZ, EU, World Bank, and other more. It responds to international public debates on important real-life themes like: The Water, Food and Energy Nexus and the Rio + 20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, the International Decade for Action: Water for Life, or the Millennium Development Goals, to just mention a few. ITT‘s research and teaching is organized in seven chairs in an interdisciplinary environment working on three core research lines.
