FEEM Seminar on “Spatial and Temporal Variabilities of Land Uses as Affected by Global Change: a Focus on Mediterranean Agriculture”
At the global level, climate and socio-economic changes determine the patterns of allocation and trade of resources in all markets. When considering adaptation of social and ecological systems to climate change, their inherent complexity and their spatial and temporal variabilities put the usefulness of consolidated CGE approaches under question for long term projections. Carlo Giupponi – VICCS and CMCC – and Vahid Mojtahed – VICCS -, explore the potential for integration of the Top-Down and Bottom-Up approaches with CGE models providing the macro-economic trends under the effects of global change scenarios and agent-based models used to simulate grid-based land use change dynamics, with consideration of spatial and temporal variabilities.
