Global Assessment of Land Use dynamics on
Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Ecosystem Services
Coordination and Synthesis of Regional Studies on Land Management in BMBF-call "Sustainable Landmanagement", Part A
The GLUES project proposal responds to the call for scientific coordination and synthesis of the call on "Sustainable Land Use Management" by BMBF.
GLUES supports international interdisciplinary collaborated research projects by facilitation and coordination, by a common data platform and by developing consistent scenarios on land use, climate and socio eco-nomic change. GLUES will develop concepts for synthesizing results from collaborative re-search projects funded by this call working in different regions across the world, as well as from other related international research programmes and projects.
Further support to col-laborative research projects will be based on the development of consistent scenarios and data
sets on land use dynamics as well as on demands for ecosystem services on different spatial and temporal scales. Technically, a common Geodata Infrastructure (GDI) will provide access to model results for further analysis as well as for dissemination of results, allowing for and supporting analysis and synthesis of global and regional impacts of land use man-agement on ecosystem services and greenhouse gas emissions. Major achievements are expected regarding consistent up scaling, interregional comparison of global ecosystem ser-vices assessments, analysis of off-site effects and trade-offs between land use decisions in different regions. GLUES will hence improve the visibility of German land use research in the international research arena.
