Global Land Use and Sustainability (GLOBALANDS)

September 2011 to June 2014
August 2012 to June 2015
The pressure on land and natural resources is increasing worldwide. While there are many sectoral policies tackling different environmental problems, land use is not regulated in an integrated and overarching way. The discussion on sustainable biofuels and biomass highlights the continued lack of an effective and innovative framework to deal with complex land-use issues. The aim of the GLOBALANDS project is to identify existing land use policies and develop possible governance tools towards a more resource efficient and sustainable global land use.Read more

Helios to the Rescue

Why Solar Energy is the Key to Reanimating the Greek Economy
