The problems of increased pressure on scarce resources (land, water, labour), in particular in intensive rice growing environments in S and SE Asia is such that it is no longer sufficient to evaluate management options at the field and farm level. The current project develops a multi-scale analysis framework for natural resource management and sustainable rural development and evaluates this unselected areas characterized by increasing intensification and diversification. The project builds on a modeling framework (LUPAS) and solid network for regional scale analysis. To apply a multi-scale approach (farm to region), LUPAS will be broadened:- in width (incorporation of environmental impacts)- in length (incorporation of long-term effects) and- in depth (incorporation of farmers' decisions).
