Collating the best research, writing and analysis.

Climate, ecology, development and economics: we cover the latest campaigns, research and policy.

Land and Climate Review provides analysis of the latest academic and policy research on the interactions between land use, economic theory, climate change and culture.

We welcome contributions from academics, researchers, activists and policymakers to 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 energy and environmental research and policy consultancy. Project funders have included the Southern Environmental Law Center, the Climate and Land Use Alliance, and the European Climate Foundation.
