In this blog post, the authors introduce two new models, the TeleABM and the FLUTE, that are designed to study telecoupled land-use change but using different modelling approaches. Both models use soybean, one of the most traded commodities in the world, as an exemplary case to illustrate the ways in which they tackle the challenges of cross-scalar dynamics. The post reports on a joint webinar hosted by the GLP Working Group on Telecoupling Research held in September 2020 and featuring presentations by the three first authors.   Read full post

SESMO is launching a call for a thematic issue on large-scale behavioural models of land use change. The Thematic Issue is supported by the joint GLP/AIMES Working Group on large scale behavioural models of land use change and the Human Dimensions Focus Research Group of the CSDMS. Contributions can present theoretical or empirical analyses, methodological contributions, or relevant model developments, and will together build towards a robust agenda for future research in this field. The expected deadline for the submission of the contribution is the end of June 2021.

A new article in Agricultural Systems looks at medium-scale farms, which are often considered to be either the "light" version of land grabbing or a much-needed model of innovation. The findings of this new study suggest that the qualities attached to medium-scale farms are not as clear-cut as they are often made out to be.

Despite its significance, little is known about how production and emissions are impacted globally and the environmental impacts on rivers via changes in water flows and temperatures, and how this will change under future climates and energy policies such as the UK net-zero emissions target and the Paris agreement. This project will make first estimates of the global impact of drought on electricity production and associated enhanced emissions and environmental impacts under historic and future scenarios. Deadline: 4 January
