Land Transformations: Between Global Challenges and Local Realities

2nd Global Land Project Open Science Meeting from 19-21 March 2014 in Berlin, Germany


The aim of the GLP 2nd Open Science Meeting is to showcase the scope of ongoing research, help build a community in this highly interdisciplinary field, to inspire new research and facilitate review, theory building and extrapolation.

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

Session proposals accepted until 31 January 2013.
