LUCC Workshop: Human modification of the biosphere : Key drivers of land-use/cover change processes

Event Type:

Stockholm, Sweden  

The objective of the workshop was to develop a concensus view on the most important drivers and combination of drivers of land-use change in different situations. In the workshop, we wanted to confront the claim that some key variables (such as population, consumption, technology, institutions, biophysical factors, values, etc.) are essential drivers, against empirical evidence derived from case studies and, when possible, statistical data.
