The GLP working group Telecoupling Towards Sustainable Transformation held its third webinar to discuss the progress and challenges of modelling telecoupled systems by presenting two different modelling attempts of simulating land use changes in Brazil and China through the flow of international soybean trade.
The GLP working group on telecoupling held its first webinar, which introduced the freely-available FABIO model, in September. View a recording of the full webinar, download a copy of the presentation, and more.
This recent article in Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability (COSUST) was written by members of the GLP community for an upcoming GLP Special Issue in COSUST. The paper argues that normative positions are increasingly required of sustainability science and lays out principles that served to guide the themes and organization of the 4th GLP Open Science Meeting.
Telecoupling Working Group Coordinator Cecilie Friis and SSC Member Jonas Nielsen have published a book that presents an overview of telecoupling and its relevance in understanding global land-use change and its sustainablility challenges.
