Abstract:

Land use is reflecting the dynamic interactions of humans with the environment. Land use change has important impacts on the climate system, hydrology and geochemical cycles. At the same time, changes in land use systems affect the provisioning of ecosystem services with impacts on human livelihoods and vulnerability to environmental risks. Land use change is both a driver of global change and a result of global change processes. At the same time, land use provides the option to mitigate and adapt to global change, providing sustainability solutions.

Understanding changes in land systems requires the integration of research on global processes that drive interactions and teleconnections between world regions with research of the local realities and impacts of land use changes.

In my talk I will provide examples of research on the analysis and modelling of land use change and ecosystem services across different scale and address the role of modelling in translating scientific knowledge to land management strategies.
