7. Cross-cutting issues II

Land planning plays a key role to get adapted to climate change impacts, but also to reduce emissions, and to mitigate losses in ecosystem services. It also plays a key role on social and economic issues. How can we conciliate all these questions? Are there synergies and trade-offs?
