We will develop a process of land use planning which (i) brings together public and private actors operating at different scales, from global to local, (ii) builds on the recent proposals to integrate LSS with landscape planning through “land systems architecture”, (iii) accounts for tradeoffs between local and global sustainability issues, (iv) integrates emerging private-led and market-based instruments of land use governance.
1: From plans to land change: how strategic spatial planning contributes to the development of urban regions (CONCUR), founded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. 42 face-to-face in-depth interviews in Barcelona (Spain), Cardiff (Wales, UK), Copenhagen (Denmark), Dublin (Ireland), Edinburgh (Scotland, UK), Hamburg (Germany), Hannover (Germany), Helsinki-Uusimaa (Finland), Lyon (France), Milan (Italy), Oslo-Akershus (Norway), Stockholm (Sweden), Stuttgart (Germany), Vienna (Austria).

2: Land degradation in strategic spatial plans. The main goal is to identify best practices, programs and instruments used in halting and reversing land degradation in 12 European and 4 North America urban regions.
3: 'Branding for People and Nature: Investigating the Role of Place-Based Branding Strategies in
Landscape Conservation and Citizens' Feelings of Well-being'. The overall goal of this research is to help bridge this gap by developing a scientific basis by means of an analytical framework, which adequately balances the ecological goals of landscape conservation with socio-economic outcomes for regional branding.
