Decision support system for sustainable ecosystem management in atlantic rain forest rural areas

Objective

The aim of this project is to produce a management oriented decision support system on interdisciplinary basis to promote a sustainable development of rural areas situated in the tropical rain forests affected by intensive and growing human pressure. The decision support system has to be based on knowledge related both to local and to global levels to improve the socio-economic conditions by the use and protection of natural resources taking into account alternative income and the new market trends at regional and global levels. The research will be developed in the Atlantic Rain Forest, which represents one of the clearest examples of sensitive areas where the effects of the increasing anthropogenic pressures have a strong negative impact on ecosystem functionality.
