Landuse strategies for a sustainable future

The aim of the project is to create land use strategies and decision-making processes that meet climate, biodiversity and human well-being objectives of sustainability. By involving actors at multiple decision-making levels in a holistic approach to understand multi-scale land use systems. The objective is to create usable tools for land managers, users, planners and policy makers.
