The 2014 Global Land Project Open Science 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

The Land Science Community is invited to contribute sessions until the extended deadline for proposals: 31 January 2013
