The Global Land Programme (GLP) is an interdisciplinary community of science and practice that aims to advance understanding of land system change as a cause and consequence of global change and as a sustainability solution. GLP is a Global Research Programme of the Future Earth initiative and represents the largest international research network in this field.
GLP programme activities and network organization
Land system science is still evolving as an “interdiscipline” with strong connections between scientific understanding and the communities of practice and policy that govern and manage the use of land. In this context, GLP supports synthesis and agenda-setting activities, while serving as a platform for exchange, collaboration, and innovation.
