The GLO Working Papers Series is a supplementary set of publications that cover a wide variety of strategic issues related to land management and planning. The series aims to provide an expanded format as well as an additional vehicle for those authors invited to contribute to the GLO main report. 

A number of working papers were commissioned to provide insights and analysis on the major themes addressed in this first edition of the GLO. The series is expected to be an ongoing activity that will contribute to successive Outlooks.
