Sabine Fuss studied international economics, receiving an MSc from the University of Maastricht, where she also completed a PhD on sustainable development in the energy sector. Before coming to MCC, Sabine Fuss led a group working on the development of economic methods with emphasis on uncertainty and risk in the Ecosystems Services and Management Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). In that capacity, she was responsible for, among other functions, international and national projects in the area of climate change mitigation and adaptation, especially in the case of land use.
