GWSP Archive: Global Land Project – Open Science Meeting 2014

 Land Transformations: Between Global Challenges and Local Realities, 19 – 21 March 2014, Berlin

GWSP will join the 2014 Global Land Project Open Science Meeting. The meeting will synthesize and discuss the role of the land system as a platform for human-environment interactions, connecting local land use decisions to global impacts and responses.

Main conference themes:

  • Rethinking land change transitions: drastic changes in land cover and subtle changes in land management
  • Local land users in a tele-connected world: the role of human decision making on land use as both a driver and response to global environmental change
  • Impacts and responses: land systems changes to mitigate global environmental change impacts and adapt to increasing demands for food, fuel and ecosystem services
  • Land governance: the ways in which alternative approaches to governance of land resources can enhance the sustainability transition

Venue: Humboldt University, Berlin.
