TALE - Towards multifunctional agricultural landscapes in Europe: Assessing and governing synergies between biodiversity and ecosystem services
Stakeholder guidelines were developed to initiate a bottom-up process for ensuring co-design of knowledge within the project. The stakeholder involvement played a fundamental role in the project. By using the stakeholder-defined scenarios as model input, we received information on their impact on selected ecosystem services and biodiversity. In addition, explorative modelling was carried out to explore limits but also further potential of providing several ecosystem services of a region. Combining the scenario simulations with the results of the explorative modelling indicates where, for instance, agro-environmental measures can be implemented most efficiently to approach the 'optimum'.
By analyzing policy instruments and combining stakeholder integration with scenario and explorative modelling the project helps to identify priority areas for land use systems, specific areas suitable for intensification or find the best locations for environmental measures. Thus, TALE contributes to solve multi-criteria problems to support landscape multifunctionality.
