Welcome to the homepage of SLUSE
SLUSE is an educational program aiming to strengthen existing Master level educational activities at University of Copenhagen and Roskilde University (RUC), within sustainable land use and natural resource management in developing countries. An important objective is to approach these issues in an interdisciplinary fashion by taking point of departure in natural, agricultural, social and cultural theories and methods.
