Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to invite you to submit an abstract to the Pre-IGU 2016 Conference Workshop Land Use and Rural Sustainability that will be held in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China on August 17-20, 2016, under the auspices of the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the National Social Science Foundation of China. The workshop will be co-organized by the following organizations: Institue of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research (IGSNRR), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS);Key Laboratory of Degraded and Unused Land Consolidation Engineering, The Ministry of Land and Resources of China; Beijing Normal University; Shaanxi Normal University; the journal Land Use Policy (published by Elsevier); and the Department of Geography, Environment and Population, University of Adelaide.

Land conversion from its natural state to human use is often an irreversible effect of human interaction with the natural environment. The transformation of human socio-economic activities exerts further impacts on land-use change and associated policy making, especially in developing countries over recent decades. As the most populous nation, China has undergone rapid and intense socio-economic transformations during recent decades, a process that has been accompanied by rapid land-use changes and modifications affecting all sectors of the country’s economy. In the meantime, urbanization has also had profound impacts on rural areas, which have witnessed depopulation, farmland loss, abandoned residential land, ‘hollowed villages’, environmental problems and declining development capability. Key questions arising are: How to revitalize the decaying villages? How to further improve land use productivity whilst achieving more sustainable development? How to implement rural restructuring and improve rural transformational development? What are the connections between land use and rural development? What experiences from other parts of the world can be applied in China?

Theme 1. Key issues of land use and sustainability

Focus on land use problems,environmental pressures and policy challenges toward land use sustainability

Theme 2. Urbanization and farmland protection

Focus on the process of rapid urbanization and how farmland can be protected

Theme 3. Rural transforamtion and reconstruction

Focus on the process, response and mechanisms of rural transformation and reconstruction, and the consolidation of ‘hollowed villages’

Theme 4. Urban-rural interaction in a changing society

Focus on how urban and rural areas interact with each other in the face of rapid change

Theme 5. Land resources engineering and land use policy

Focus on land consolidation experiences in improving land use efficiency and changing relationships between people and the land

Keynote speakers

We are happy to invite world-renowned scholars to share their ideas and reserach progress in the field of land use and rural sustainability.
