Collating the best research, writing and analysis.

Our aim is to share and amplify campaigns, peer-reviewed research and policy developments in a range of topics related to climate change, urban development, economics and biodiversity protection. From the Global South and North.

Land and Climate Review aims to provide analysis and commentary on the latest academic and policy research on the interactions between land use, economic theory, climate change and culture.

We hope that academics, researchers, activists and policymakers will be able to contribute to the publication and help inform readers around the world. We also hope journalists researching these topics will find the resources useful.

The site is powered and funded by the team at Culmer Raphael, an ecological research and policy consultancy, founded in 2014 with a footprint in London and Brussels. We are happy to receive submissions, suggestions and corrections.
