Sustainable development covers environmental, social, and economic sectors. Environmentally sustainable development has to account for not only the ecosystem and biodiversity, but also environmental health and conservation. However, human activities consume environmental resources and undermine environmentally sustainable development. To identify these issues, the Global Land Project (GLP), a joint research project concerning land systems between the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP) and the International Human Dimensions Programme (IHDP), ambitiously aims to “measure, model[,] and understand the coupled human-environmental system”.
This Special Issue comprises of selected papers from the Global Land Project (GLP) Asia Conference, which will be held in Taipei, Taiwan on 24–26 September, 2014. The conference will identify and investigate contributions concerning “sustainable land use and ecosystem management”, “investigation[s] of the vulnerability and resilience [of] critical lands”, the “development of modeling and analy[tical] tools for land-use projects”, and other related topics. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subjected to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications in the area of environmentally sustainable development.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
