The paper has two interconnected bodies. The first one deals with mineral resource indicators and their role in drawing 11 EU–Africa Strategic Corridors, in a broader context of Africa–EU partnership. The second strives to understand how such Strategic Corridors are also mineral corridors, i.e. development promotors that use mineral resources as a...

Agricultural land and forest & natural vegetated (F&NV) areas are the largest land groups in the EU, each one accounting for more than 40% of the EU territory. They are expected to marginally shrink between 2015 and 2030, while built-up areas are likely to expand by more than 3%, reaching 7% of the EU territory by 2030.

A comprehensive assessment of European forest-based biomass harvest potentials , their future utilization and implications on international wood product markets and forest carbon dynamics requires the capability to model forest resource development as well as global markets for wood-based commodities with sufficient geographical and product detail...
Article
Full-text available
Appropriate land management can be an effective approach to improving water quantity regulation. There is, however, a need to identify both where measures are most needed and where they may be most effective. The water retention index (WRI) was developed with this goal in mind. The WRI is a composite indicator which takes into account parameters re...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
There is a distinct difference in land-use models that focus on land functions or land cover. Both aspects of land use have their merit for policy evaluation, but a model that integrates them is challenging. This paper discusses methods to integrate both aspects. It proceeds by introducing new developments in the fine-resolution and temporally dyna...

Water quantity management remains an issue in Europe, resulting in numerous periods of regional flooding and drought annually. Land management can be a powerful natural approach to reduce the impacts of such fluctuations in water flow through the landscape, especially in upstream source areas. The Water Retention Index has been developed as a tool...

The ‘Land-Use-based Integrated Sustainability Assessment’ modelling platform (LUISA) is primarily used for the ex-ante evaluation of EC policies that have a direct or indirect territorial impact. It is based on the concept of ‘land function’ for cross-sector integration and for the representation of complex system dynamics. Beyond a traditional lan...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The concept of ‘dynamic land function’ is a new notion for cross-sector integration and for the representation of complex system dynamics. A land function can be societal (e.g. provision of housing, leisure and recreation), economic (e.g. provision of production factors - employment, investments, energy – or provision of manufacturing products and...

Since land is a finite resource, the competition for land among different uses has become a real problem. Competition for land takes place when different alternative uses (such as agriculture, forestry, energy or/and natural conservation) are competing for the same piece of land. When the competition for land is highly intense in a given territory,...

Shale gas is currently being explored in Europe as an alternative energy source to conventional oil and gas. There is, however, increasing concern about the potential environmental impacts of shale gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing (fracking). In this study, we focussed on the potential impacts on regional water resources within the Baltic Bas...
