Webinar: “Mapping future land-use and land cover patterns – the Europe-LAND approach”
February 15 @ 13:00 - 14:00
In this short webinar, Europe-LAND partners will discuss land use/land cover modelling possibilities and significance for development planning, climate change mitigation and biodiversity conservation as well as impacts of environmental change on it. Project partners will share their experience on land use/land cover modelling. In addition, the webinar will present the Europe-LAND perspectives on land use/land cover modelling and its significance to promote a wide and active involvement of various stakeholder groups across several European countries and case studies.
To enable stakeholders to link up with the project and benefit from research results in the course of the 4-year project, several opportunities for stakeholder interaction with the project will be presented.
