Land surface in Germany is used intensively. Land fulfils many societal requirements including the production of food, energy and wood, or provides area for settlement and transportation infrastructure and recreation. Global changes such as climate change and globalisation of economic systems will increase the competition for the limited land resources that exist between the various societal demands in Germany and in many other regions of world.
How to integrate aspects of preserving an intact environment, climate protection, and sustainable resource management into this complex realm of land use conflicts is the research focus of the joint project CC-LandStraD “Interdependencies between Land use and Climate Change – Strategies for a sustainable land use management in Germany”.
CC-LandStraD within the German Scientific Landscape
CC-LandStraD is one regional project within the funding programme “Sustainable Land Management” of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Here it is linked to Module A: “Interactions between land management, climate change and ecosystem services” within the funding programme (www.nachhaltiges-landmanagement.de/en/). This funding programme is part of the BMBF framework programme “Research for Sustainable Development” (FONA) (www.fona.de/en/index.php).
