Researchers from IIASA, INPE and UNEP-WCMC presented first results of the REDD at the second GLP Open Science Meeting from 19 to 21 March 2014 in Berlin

The Global Land Project (GLP) is a joint research project for land systems for the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program (IGBP) and the International Human Dimensions Program (IHDP). The project's second meeting brought together 570 scientists from all over the world under the conference slogan "Land Transformations: between global challenges and local realities". In recent years, remote sensing and land use modeling technology have advanced greatly which makes REDD-PAC benefit from interaction with the global land community.
