The international research programme ‘Sustainable Land Management’ is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research of Germany for a projected duration of five years (2011-2015). At the hand of various examples, the research projects funded by the programme develop new models, technologies, system solutions and policy strategies for sustainable land management, including restoration. The projects take into account integrative, interdisciplinary and regional perspectives, which enables them to address the variety and complexity of the demands placed on land and natural resources. Research is oriented towards policy development and the project scientists of the joint research teams from Germany and the host countries work in close cooperation with regional and international stakeholders.
