What is Module A of the ‘Sustainable Land Management’ funding measure?

The Sustainable Land Management funding measure, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), aims to contribute to the development and implementation of practical solutions for global and regional challenges of land management. It seeks to develop new perspectives on the responsible use of the scarce land resources.

The focus of research in Module A is on the interactions between land management, climate change and ecosystem services. These interactions are multi-dimensional and complex and are not yet fully understood.


We would like to announce the upcoming FinalConference2016. It will be held on March 7-9, 2016 at dbb forum in Berlin.

The FinalConference2016 aims to draw a conclusion of the BMBF research programme ‘Sustainable Land Management’. Thus the conference is to present results and lessons learned from the individual projects and the programme as a whole gained over the last seven years. We hope that you will be able to join us in Berlin.
