Simulating land-use processes - an interactive e-tool for SIA

Objective

The objective is to train in the use of sustainability impact and policy assessment in EU and Russia, especially in issues concerning forests, agricultural landscapes, water environments and built-up areas through the development of an innovative and interactive e-tool for multiple end users. This freeware product will be based on simulations of advanced dynamic models, incorporated into a multimedia presentation in parallel English/Russian. The e-tool will be developed base on case studies on Eurasian sites from Holland to Siberia, and within an infrastructure of Universities, research organisations, administrations, student groups within this large area. The project has four distinct phases (i) case studies on ecosystem biogeochemistry, pollution effects, biodiversity, eco-technosystems, multifunctional agriculture, sustainable building etc., (ii) feeding dynamic models and incorporating them into an interactive visualization software, (iii) combining simulations, text, videos and graphics into a e-textbook written by 30-40 experts, (iv) testing of the e-tool/e-textbook by policy makers (including EC staff) and stakeholders.
