GLP Taipei Nodal Office together with GLP Japan Nodal Office, are pleased to announce the GLP 2018 Asia Conference to be held in Taipei, Taiwan on 03 ~ 05 September 2018. The conference will provide a multidisciplinary platform for environmental scientists, engineers, and management professionals to discuss the interdisciplinary land use developments and sustainability solutions.
This year, the GLP 2018 Asia Conference will be focusing on “Transitioning to Sustainable Development of Land Systems through Teleconnections and Telecouplings”.
The teleconnections and telecouplings offer conceptual frameworks to evaluate socio-economic and environmental interactions over distances. In order to transition to environmental sustainability, the frameworks are helpful to measure drivers and impacts of the interactions, and to model the interactions from global to local scales. The goal of this conference is to provide, from global to local, interdisciplinary sustainability solutions, which can be covered by the themes:
- Urban rural teleconnections
- Integrated regional models
- Modelling land system change
- Land use drivers and impacts
- Telecouplings of Land use systems

- Land management systems
- Other relevant topics
