Cluster C: Patterns of land use, social fabric, and consumption

General Hypotheses:

(H3) Diversity in production systems and in exchange processes of goods and services is highest at intermediate stages of transition and decreases again as food systems become more efficient.

(H4) Ecological constraints and economic opportunities increase with urbanisation make decision processes and governance more complex.
