Most research in land system science focuses on farmers as key actors driving agricultural change. However, farmers are in reality embedded in multi-actor networks and we lack understanding of the nature and diversity of these networks. The authors of a new paper in Global Environmental Change conducted a meta-study to synthesize knowledge on agri-food networks in Europe. The resulting archetypical network configurations reveal the most common actors and interactions, and suggest a need for future research in land system science to better understand the drivers and impacts of agri-food network (re)configurations.

The GLP Behavioural Models of Land Systems Working Group will host Christian Troost and Robert Huber, who will discuss validation in agent-based models, including a protocol for finding and documenting context-adequate and mutually consistent methods throughout the modelling process. Tim Williams will discuss using modelling to examine power dynamics in agri-food transitions.
