Kunming Hosts Capacity Building Seminar on Land Use Change Modeling
Time:2015.10.28 16:01:36

Land use planners in Yunnan were introduced to a new land use change modeling application at an awareness raising and capacity building event held in Kunming from 21–25 September.

The CLUMondo modeling software helps planners project the type, scale, and location of future demand for land. When combined with other tools, such as Spatial Multicriteria Assessment, it enables land use decisions to better balance economic, social, and environmental considerations.

Funded by the GMS Core Environment Program (CEP),  an improved version of the software was recently developed and a capacity building program is being rolled out for the six GMS countries.

With CEP support, the Yunnan Institute of Environment Science (YIES) and the Free University of Amsterdam jointly organized the seminar to introduce CLUMondo to Yunnan planners and decision-makers and also to build broader understanding about the benefits of land use change simulation technologies.

The longer-term aim is to develop a network of academic institutions to provide modeling support to relevant government agencies.

Nearly 30 participants attended the seminar, including representatives from:

- YIES

- Yunnan Urban and Rural Planning and Design Institute

- Design Institute of Yunnan Province

- Yunnan Forestry Survey Planning and Design Institute,

- State Forestry Administration of Survey and Design Institute,

- Yunnan Basic Geographic Information Center,

- Yunnan Environmental Engineering Assessment Center
