How to navigate between singularity of case studies and production of actionable knowledge on complex human-environment systems? The GLP Working Group on Co-production of Sustainable Land Systems is addressing this question through an analysis of co-production practices in the field of land system science and a series of webinars. Learn more about the second webinar, which illustrated practical examples about adaptive landscape approaches, and access additional resources from the presenters.   Read full post
