Political land use decisions play a key role, particularly in the prevention of conflicts and utilization of synergies between different SDGs. Science Policy Interfaces (SPIs) are increasingly being established to translate scientific findings into relevant options for action for political decision-makers. Therefore, in LANUSYNCON we assess how conflicts and synergies between SDGs are addressed in international and national SPIs in order to identify factors and obstacles to coherent land use in the development policy context. The influence of SPIs on national policy discourses as well as the resulting land use conflicts on the ground are examined more closely using the local case studies.
