Resource-efficient Land Use - Towards a global sustainable land use standard (GLOBALANDS)

GLOBALANDS project aims to identify promising existing land use policies and to develop possible governance tools towards a more resource efficient and sustainable global land use. After almost four years of intensive research on sustainable land use at global level, the GLOBALANDS project ended in April 2015. A synthesis report was published by the Federal Agency of Environment in October 2015. The report summarises major findings of the research and discussions undertaken in the project. Future pathways towards global sustainable land use are described and recommendations for German policy are presented. The report ends with remaining questions, which need further investigation and discussion, follow the Synthesis Report "Resource-efficient Land Use - Towards a global sustainable land use standard (GLOBALANDS) and other reports from this project here
