L’évolution des sociétés humaines (démographie, urbanisation, agriculture, transports...) d’une part, et le dérèglement climatique d’autre part, entrainent une intensification et une multiplication des pressions sur la biodiversité et des altérations de celle-ci, des perturbations du fonctionnement des écosystèmes et la réduction des services...


The study estimated the benefits and costs of reducing deforestation and forest degradation for four different management regimes (community forests, collaboratively managed forest, protected forests, and protected areas) across three physiographic regions of Nepal (mid-hills, the Siwaliks and the Terai).1 The findings of the study could help...


LADA’s main objective, using its mapping and assessment tools, is to identify and understand the causes of land degradation and the impacts of land use, including the effectiveness of current/recent responses, thereby enabling adequate and sustainable land management solutions to be devised. LADA provides a global monitoring and assessment...


In this paper we present and discuss how an energy system model for Norway, a regional economic model for Norway and an environmental and climate assessment tool will be linked to allow improved assessments of energy and climate policies. Since the implementation is not ready yet, we hypothesize how results from this linked framework would be...


This report presents a qualitative description of ecosystem services being provided by natural habitats. It lays the groundwork for a description of the factors affecting ecosystem services delivery – both favourably, in the sense of management to restore or enhance ecosystem services delivery, and negatively in the sense of summarizing human...
