A Policy Perspective of the Development of Dutch Land-Use Models

Part of the GeoJournal Library book series (GEJL, volume 101)


Preceding chapters show how land-use models have been used successfully in recent years to support decision-making processes for the formulation of new spatial policy strategies. In several of those chapters (see Chapters 4, 6 and 8), studies are described that explore the potential spatial patterns that may result from different policy alternatives related to, for example, climate change, the stimulation of bioenergy production and various strategies of urbanisation . This chapter focuses on future policy-related research questions that need to be addressed by the LUMOS toolbox. It describes, therefore, the LUMOS research agenda from a policy perspective.
