STIMUL - Scenarios Towards Integrating Multi-scale Land-use tools
Land use and climate change issues are at the intersection of research carried out by teams in the BASC LabEx. BASC teams have developed a range of economic and biophysical models to analyze the factors driving land use change and assess their ecological, agricultural, climatic and economic impacts. These models differ in their methodologies, scale of interest and resolution, but they are very complementary and could provide the LabEx with a unique capacity to analyze policies that influence land use.
