The working group Sustainable Land Use in Developing Countries (SusLAND) focusses on the analysis of land use and landscape systems in emerging and developing countries. Based on the analyses, interdisciplinary research methods are used to develop strategies to mitigate complex problems of farming systems in developing countries at local, regional and global scales. Emphasis is placed on questions regarding the avoidance of land use conflicts, the improved adaptation to climate change, food and nutrition security, and the stabilization of the livelihood of family farms. The working group operates in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and South Asia and focusses in particular on resource economics in combination with natural sciences, thus ensuring an interdisciplinary integrated research approach. SusLAND’s operational strategy a world-wide network of direct and indirect partner institutions.
