Why?

Project Objective: The objective of ABC Telecoupling is to enhance the capacity to predict effects from shifts in food flows and land use; tools to facilitate policy changes to improve food security, while ensuring a more sustainable environment; increased cooperation among major research and stakeholder groups in major food production and consuming countries; and training a new generation alert to minimizing negative consequences from changes in land use worldwide. The project will provide a comprehensive framework, a complex systems modeling approach and a web-based decision support system to finding solutions that enhance food security for all, while ensuring a sustainable earth.
Call Objective: This call was designed to increase understanding of the dynamic spatial scale interactions between food security and land use. The focus was on the following topics:

- Land use change impacts on food systems
- Food systems dynamics as driver of land use changes
- Feedback loop interactions between land use change and food security dynamics
