LUC4C is advised by a Scientific Advisory Group (SAG) with experts from climate change and land use change science and policy. The chief tasks of the SAG is to provide feedback and guidance for the project and to stimulate new ideas jointly with the consortium. The SAG’s representation of different world regions aids information flow on some regional issues, e.g. related to its three focal regions.
