Land use is key to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in an increasingly threatened global environment. How do global narratives for use of land correspond to what people want when striving for access to land across diverse and distinctive regions? How can we support transformations that mutually reinforce global sustainability visions and goals, and people’s aspirations and needs?

Researchers from ESM will be addressing these questions at the fourth Open Science Meeting of the Global Land Programme (GLP 4th OSM 2019) and will present research relating to topics and themes that aim to advance our understanding of how land systems can form the basis for sustainability transformations.

Below list is a selection of IIASA participation. For the full program please visit GLP OSM 2019 home page.
