FEEM Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan research institution devoted to the study of sustainable development and global governance. Officially recognized by the President of the Italian Republic in 1989 and in full operation since 1990, FEEM has grown to become a leading research centre, providing timely and objective analysis on a wide range of environmental, energy and global economic issues. FEEM's mission is to improve through research the quality of decision-making in public and private spheres. This goal is achieved by creating an international and multidisciplinary network of researchers working on several innovative programmes, by providing and promoting training in specialized areas of research, by disseminating research results through a wide range of outreach activities, and by delivering directly to policy makers via participation in various institutional fora. Much of FEEM research on biodiversity is currently focused on scaling up the value of ecosystem services, with the aim to enable policy makers to incorporate the value of ecosystem into their decisions, taking into account trade-offs and conflicts in land use options, particularly with regard to scarce resources such as habitat and biodiversity stocks.
