This Focus Issue of Environmental Research Letters consolidates archetypes of sustainable land use and governance in order to provide a state-of-the-art knowledge resource to transform land use systems towards sustainability across world regions. It will advance knowledge in four thematic priority areas of land use systems: telecoupled land systems; land governance; farming systems; and interactions between land, food, climate and biodiversity. Deadline: 11 December 2020
A group of GLP Members published this piece in the Journal of Land Use Science, highlighting the potential of incorporating elements of environmental justice scholarship into the evolving telecoupling framework that focuses on distant interactions in land systems.
Submissions are sought for a new Special Feature in Sustainability Science being edited by GLP Members Christian Kimmich, Christoph Oberlack and Sergio Villamayor-Tomas. Expressions of interest are due on 31 August 2020.
There is still an urgent need for quality standards to guide the design of theoretically rigorous and practically useful archetype analyses. In this article by GLP Members, the authors propose four quality criteria and corresponding research strategies to address them.
