Eike Behre is Project Manager at UNU-EHS and the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII). He is a member of the Climate Risk Analytics Team at MCII and part of the Environmental Vulnerability & Ecosystem Services division (EVES).

Mr. Behre has led the implementation of several climate risk analysis studies, including the Economics of Climate Adaptation (ECA) Framework and the probabilistic model CLIMADA. In addition, his work concentrates on quantitative assessment methods for nature-based solutions that evaluate the risk-reduction potential of ecosystem services as well as their wider societal, environmental and economic benefits. A fundamental part of this work links environmental-economic accounting with disaster risk finance, seeking to understand enablers for mobilizing resources and needed investments into nature. Prior to MCII, Mr. Behre worked at GIZ on Advancing Climate Risk Insurance Plus (ACRI+), a BMU-funded project with a focus on applying the Integrated Climate Risk Management approach to the renewable energy sector in Barbados. In addition, Mr. Behre has gained valuable experience with forest carbon offset projects (REDD+) in Fiji and Viet Nam. Eike Behre holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Science from the Wageningen University and a Bachelor’s degree in Forest and Nature Conservation from Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences.
