Description

Because land is a fundamental input of anthropogenic (production, residence, recreationetc.) as well as non-anthropogenic (ecosystem functioning, refuge, habitat etc.) activities,modelling such impacts require a conceptual framework multi-sectoral and multi-zonal inscope. This framework should account for flows of people, commodities and services fromone sector to the other and from one zone to the other. Because of the very nature of theproblem at hand, an urban and rural context needs also be given to the conceptualframework. In this paper we propose an extension to the PACE model inspired by themodelling approach of metropolitan input-output models (see Jun, 1999 and 2005).

Land use policy impacts in the rural-urban region: a modelling framework

Because land is a fundamental input of anthropogenic (production, residence, recreationetc.) as well as non-anthropogenic (ecosystem functioning, refuge, habitat etc.) activities,modelling such impacts require a conceptual framework multi-sectoral and multi-zonal inscope. This framework should account for flows of people, commodities and services fromone sector to the other and from one zone to the other. Because of the very nature of theproblem at hand, an urban and rural context needs also be given to the conceptualframework. In this paper we propose an extension to the PACE model inspired by themodelling approach of metropolitan input-output models (see Jun, 1999 and 2005).
