The initiative has been running since January 2014 in collaboration with the Decentralized Autonomous Governments - DAG in the area of influence as well as its Provincial Government.
Smart land is organized into thirteen work packages which cover a variety of topics. The work packages help contribute to the successful completion of the initiative´s core objectives via research projects proposed by researchers UTPL. The research projects also include the participation of international researchers with which the university has scientific links.
The selection of indicators to be monitored is based on their sustainability. This is important when trying to understand the behavioural changes of the indicators over time, in evaluating the relationship/ interaction between the indicators and also when creating predictive models.
