integral

 

The main objective of this project was to bring the landscape dimension closer to Europe. At the same time,the project provided demand-driven information for European policy decision makers on the challenges in forest management in 20 regions throughout Europe.

The former EFIATLANTIC and IRSTEA coordinated the case study in France, while EFIATLANTIC partners, ISA and FR, coordinated two other case studies.

Social science and ecological science are combined to forecast the impacts of various political options on forest landscapes. Few scenarios of regional policies evolution have been set up and evaluated in each case study simulating landscape evolution with indicators of sustainability spatially (or not in some cases studies) explicit on a period of 30 to 50 years.
