Sustainable Land Use
This joint research project was funded by UBA, addressing which sustainability requirements could be defined for global land use, and asking if a respective global "standard" could be developed and implemented - and with whom. The project was lead by IINAS, and carried out in collaboration with Ecologic Institute, Oeko-Institut and Leuphana University from Sept. 2011 until June 2015.
