Global Land Outlook

Global Land Outlook

The Global Land Outlook (GLO) is a strategic communication platform that demonstrates the central importance of land quality to human well-being. It assesses current trends in land conversion, degradation and loss, identifies driving factors and analyzes impacts, provides scenarios for future challenges and opportunities and presents a new transformative vision for land management policies, planning and practice at global and national scales.

Bringing together a diverse group of international experts and partners, the GLO addresses future challenges in the management and restoration of land resources in the context of sustainable development, including:

  • food, water and energy security
  • climate change and biodiversity conservation
  • urban, peri-urban and infrastructure development
  • land tenure, governance and gender
  • migration, conflict and human security

An integral part of the GLO’s digital platform will be the direct linkage with and support from the UNCCD’s Knowledge Hub which will allow users to perform advanced searches within the relevant knowledge bases of our partners.
