    Project background

    Research Project: New Urban Agendas Under Planetary Urbanisation

    While discussions on urban sustainability have focused on cities and urban regions, many agricultural territories are equally exposed to rapid and far-​reaching urban transformation processes with massive social and environmental implications, opening a research gap for ‘agri-​urbanisms'.

    The New Urban Agendas under Planetary Urbanisation module aims to address the gap by analysing selected processes of ‘extended urbanisation' in agricultural territories across Europe and Asia.

    The module combines detailed qualitative analysis with quantitative geospatial analysis and modelling, thereby linking the social, political and cultural aspects of urbanisation to transformations in land use patterns, soil ecosystems and ecosystem services.
