To develop regional and world wide collaborative research programs on land systems so as to improve the understanding on the function of Earth Systems.
To identify regional priorities and potential sponsorship so as to make GLP a board-based international program in sci-entific participation, project sponsorship, and organiza-tional leadship.
To Enhance institutional capa-city through capacity building for sustainable governance of land systems and eco-environ-ment.
