Dr. Luuk Fleskens obtained a PhD in Production Ecology & Resource Conservation from Wageningen University in 2007 and currently is Associate Professor in Sustainable Land Management at Wageningen University.

Dr. Luuk Fleskens specializes on impact assessment of land and water management. In total he has over 15 years experience working on sustainable land management in advisory, researching, and consulting positions with a focus on Africa and Southern Europe. Previous experiences include working as a technical advisor for capacity building of research on soil and water conservation in Eritrea, and as a consultant for a wide range of organizations and projects in Mozambique. Recent consultancy assignments include the development of a payment for watershed services programme for UNDP in Malawi, a study on prioritizing rural public works interventions for IFDC in Rwanda, Burundi and Eastern Congo DRC and on including environmental conservation in an integrated environmental health project for AMREF in Kenya. He has taken part in coordination teams and steering committees of several large interdisciplinary research projects funded by EU (AWACAD and WAHIA (FP4), OLIVERO (FP5), DESIRE (FP6), WAHARA, CASCADE and RECARE (FP7)) and EPSRC (Transforming water scarcity through trading).

His current research focuses on integrated environmental modelling of mitigation strategies for land degradation, addressing issues of economic evaluation across scales in spatially-explicit scenarios. Luuk is interested in developing models that address local realities and that are capable of assessing the impact of environmental change as well as evaluating the effects of adaptation and mitigation strategies on rural livelihoods and ecosystem services. Strategies thereby include both farmer management practices and policies.
