Assessing Global Land Use: Balancing Consumption with Sustainable Supply

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) report Assessing Global Land Use: Balancing Consumption with Sustainable Supply explores how the management of land-based biomass production and consumption can be developed towards a higher degree of sustainability across different scales. Specifically, it looks at the impacts of global trends – population growth, urbanisation, and changes in diets and consumption behaviors – on global land use dynamics, considering the consequences for biodiversity, the supply of food, fibers and fuel, and the long-lasting implications for resource security.
