The Global Land Project (GLP) is a joint research project for land systems for the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program (IGBP) and the International Human Dimensions Program (IHDP). The Global Land Project Science Plan represents the research framework for the coming decade for land systems. This development of a research strategy is designed to better integrate the understanding of the coupled human-environment system. These integrated science perspectives reflect the recognition of the fundamental nature of how human activities on land are affecting feedbacks to the Earth System and the response of the Human-Environment System to Global Change.
Some 570 scientists from all over the world participated in the second GLP Open Science Meeting on “Land Transformations: between global challenges and local realities”. Ziga Malek presented his work on “Effects of possible forest management scenarios in the Romanian Carpathians” and “Hydro-meteorological risk and socio-economic development: future land cover scenarios of an alpine valley.”
