Frode Sundnes has international and interdisciplinary experience from development and environmental studies. The doctoral work in political ecology and environmental history was a study of how actors, discourses and material conditions interact in processes related to land reform and nature conservation in South Africa, and how this in turn affects livelihoods and landscapes.

Sundnes is currently involved in a number of projects related to the use and management of landscapes and the outfields in Norway (FOODCOAST, Rášša, OUTGEN), and is leading a multi-level study of coastal conflicts in southern Africa (MARICA).
