Webinar: Co-designing sustainable land systems with spatial analysis and mapping tools
December 3, 2018

The GLP working group on co-production is pleased to invite you to the fourth webinar of the webinar series on co-production in the field of land-system science tomorrow Tuesday, 4 December, 2018 at 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM CET.

The webinar is open to people already engaged in co-production, as well as to newcomers to the topic, who are not currently engaged in this exciting work. The webinar will focus on co-designing sustainable land systems with spatial analysis and mapping tools.

Land systems are inherently spatial. This means that participatory land use planning and management involve negotiation and decision-making processes on issues such as the location of things, activities, and responsibilities, or the connections and complementarities of functions among different areas. Therefore, tools that help visualising past and current, or modelling future states, extents, and interactions of spatial elements, can play a crucial role for the co-production of sustainable land systems.

The three speakers will provide examples on how various types of mapping and spatial analysis tools can be used in participatory processes:

  • Joan Bastide (Senior Research Scientist, Centre for Development and Environment (CDE), University of Bern, Switzerland. Coordinator of OneMap Myanmar project)
  • Michael Uwemedimo (Project Director, CMAP, Nigeria)
  • Giacomo Rambaldi (Senior Programme Coordinator, Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation, Netherlands)
