Managing the Global Land Resource - Professor Pete Smith, University of Aberdeen

With a growing population with changing demands, competition for the global land resource is increasing. We need to feed a projected population of ~12 billion by 2100, and might also need to deliver land-based greenhouse gas removal for climate change mitigation. Managing these conflicts is a major global challenge. I will discuss some of the main challenges, synergies, trade-offs and possible solutions.
