Exercise course: Modelling Land Use Policies, Markets, and Ecosystems(C7b) (28440)

WS 2020/2021
We.: 12:00-14:00, PC-Pool ITS - Gebäude Behelfsbau 9

Thomas Schmitt, Maria Hänsel


 (former course name: Impact Assessment of Markets and Policies on Land Use and Ecosystem Services)


Starting date: First week of the semester.

Course takes place on campus with an option to participate via zoom. Please register for personal participation via e-learning. The e-learning course also contains a zoom link for online participation.


Learning Objective (module): As an outcome of this module, students are able to:

Evaluate different policies and market options in their effect on land use and ecosystem services

Interpret land use model results and put them in the context of real-world policies and markets

Identify feedback mechanisms and trade-offs in human environment systems

Course Content: In this exercise, based on the current development of agricultural and environmental policies as well as markets, possible future land use scenarios are developed and analysed for case study regions. Existing models, such as agent-based models, will be adapted and parameterized. Changes in ecosystem services through land use decisions are integrated into the model using simple estimates.

Please check the e-learning and cmlife at the beginning of the semester, as changes due to Covid-19 might occur.
