  • In 2001 – we produced an OECD Environmental Outlook to 2020 to identify the key challenges facing environmental policy makers. The results were summarised using a “traffic lights” analogy: green lights for issues that are being well managed, yellow for ones where there has been improvement but are not yet on the right track, and red for issues that need to be urgently addressed. You can see from this table the “ red light ” issues which need the most action from policy makers. These were established based on extensive analysis for the Outlook, and consultation of experts. Greenhouse gas emissions  despite the recent introduction in many OECD countries of carbon or energy taxes, tradable permits, and the growing use of the Kyoto flexibility mechanisms – only one-third of OECD countries have stabilised or reduced GHG emissions since 1990. Those that have, was the result of economic or structural changes, not successful climate policies. Motor vehicle and aviation air pollution – major source of local air pollution, GHG emissions, congestion, accidents, etc. Some local air pollutants from transport decreased (e.g. sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides), but overall pressures continuing to increase. Agricultural pollution - Agriculture continues to have significant pressures on the environment – it is responsible for 40% of nitrogen emissions and 30% of phosphorous emissions to surface waters and contributes to groundwater pollution – an increasing concern for many OECD countries. Over-fishing - 28% of major marine stocks are overexploited or recovering; 47% are fully exploited. Global biodiversity  increasing the are of natural parks (now 14.6% of OECD land area), but less success outside the parks. The percentage of known species that are endangered is continuing to increase. Chemicals in the environment - Releases of chemicals during manufacturing and from products continues, and they are now widespread presence in the environment, causing environmental and human health and problems. Of particular concern are chemicals that are persistent, bioaccumulating and/or toxic.

  • Backcasting starts with defining a desirable future and then works backwards to identify policies and programs that will connect the future to the present 25/05/11
  • Ensure focal issue matches the purpose identified in phase 1 Ad 2: inductive …. Deductive ….. incremental
  • Ad 1: Even when scenarios will not be quantified you should continue with steps 2 and 3
  • Ad 2 as a scenario should fit the context there is a strong link with Phase 2
  • Based on National socio-economic development plan
  • The future land use map generated by Clue is used as input map for Globio3 to generate the MSA_lu map and also used in combination with (future) road map to generate future MSA_infra and MSA_frag maps.

    • 1. Land use scenario development Workshop Regional changes of land use for climate change adaptation and mitigation 2 4-25 May 2011, Zamorano By Wilbert van Rooij Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL) seconded to Aidenvironment
    • 2.
      • Multi-scale
      • Multi-theme
      • Multi-sectoral and thus
      • Multi-disciplinary
      Environmental science – a complex issue An assessment of the current status is complex, the assessment of the future status even more
    • 3. What is a scenario? Scenarios are credible , challenging, and relevant stories about how the future might unfold that can be told in both words and numbers. Scenarios are plausible descriptions of how the future may develop, based on a coherent and internally consistent set of assumptions about key relationships and driving forces. Scenarios are not forecasts , projections , or predictions .
    • 4. Scenarios – overview
      • Scenarios:
      • Have the ability to address complex issues in an integrated manner.
      • Have the ability to deal with surprises , system changes , alternatives.
      • Are an excellent tool for communication
      • Possibilities for participation are large.
    • 5. Purposes of using (participatory) scenarios
      • Environmental scientists:
      • Scenarios are a good tool for an integrated analysis of a complex problem. Scenarios provide in-depth insight in complex societal problems.
      • Focus on results
      • Social scientists:
      • Scenarios are a good tool for communication, conflict management, and long-term participation. Scenarios provide an excellent tool for communication.
      • Focus on process
    • 6. Types of scenarios A Project goal - exploration vs decision support: I. Inclusion of norms? : descriptive vs normative II. Vantage point: forecasting vs backcasting III. Subject: issue-based, area-based, institution-based IV. Time scale: long term vs short term V. Spatial scale: global/supranational vs national/local B Process design – intuitive vs formal: VI. Data: qualitative vs quantitative VII. Method of data collection: participatory vs desk research VIII. Resources: extensive vs limited IX. Institutional conditions: open vs constrained C Scenario content - complex vs simple: X. Temporal nature: claim vs snapshot XI. Variables: heterogeneous vs homogenous XII. Dynamics: peripheral vs trend XIII. Level of deviation: alternative vs conventional XIV. Level of integration: high vs low

        • With the goals of:
          • stimulating and guiding action
          • building capacity
    • 10. MA Conceptual Framework
    • 11. MA Scenarios
        • Not predictions – scenarios are plausible futures
        • Both quantitative models and qualitative analysis used in scenario development
    • 12. Scenario Storylines
        • Global Orchestration Globally connected society that focuses on global trade and economic liberalization and takes a reactive approach to ecosystem problems but that also takes strong steps to reduce poverty and inequality and to invest in public goods such as infrastructure and education.
        • Order from Strength Regionalized and fragmented world, concerned with security and protection, emphasizing primarily regional markets, paying little attention to public goods, and taking a reactive approach to ecosystem problems.
    • 13. Scenario Storylines
        • Adapting Mosaic Regional watershed-scale ecosystems are the focus of political and economic activity. Local institutions are strengthened and local ecosystem management strategies are common; societies develop a strongly proactive approach to the management of ecosystems.
        • TechnoGarden Globally connected world relying strongly on environmentally sound technology, using highly managed, often engineered, ecosystems to deliver ecosystem services, and taking a proactive approach to the management of ecosystems in an effort to avoid problems.
    • 14. Changes in indirect drivers
      • In MA Scenarios:
        • Population projected to grow to 8–10 billion in 2050
        • Per capita income projected to increase two- to fourfold
    • 15. Changes in direct drivers Crop Land Changes in crop land and forest area under MA Scenarios Forest Area
    • 16. Changes in direct drivers
      • Habitat transformation:
        • Further 10–20% of grassland and forestland is projected to be converted by 2050
      • Overexploitation, overfishing:
        • Pressures continue to grow in all scenarios
        • Invasive alien species:
        • Spread continues to increase
    • 17.
      • Observed recent impacts of climate changes on ecosystems:
        • Changes in species distributions
        • Changes in population sizes
        • Changes in the timing of reproduction or migration events
        • Increase in the frequency of pest and disease outbreaks
        • Many coral reefs have undergone major, although often partially reversible, bleaching episodes when local sea surface temperatures have increased
      Changes in direct drivers: Climate Change
    • 18.
      • Potential future impacts
        • By the end of the century, climate change and its impacts may be the dominant direct driver of biodiversity loss and changes in ecosystem services globally
        • Harm to biodiversity will grow worldwide with increasing rates of change in climate and increasing absolute amounts of change
        • Some ecosystem services in some regions may initially be enhanced by projected changes in climate. As climate change becomes more severe the harmful impacts outweigh the benefits in most regions of the world
      • Net harmful impact on ecosystem services
        • The balance of scientific evidence suggests that there will be a significant net harmful impact on ecosystem services worldwide if global mean surface temperature increases more than 2 o C above preindustrial levels ( medium certainty). This would require CO 2 stabilization at less than 450 ppm.
      Changes in direct drivers: Climate Change
    • 19. Changes in ecosystem services under MA Scenarios
        • Demand for food crops is projected to grow by 70–85% by 2050, and water withdrawals by 30-85%
        • Food security is not achieved by 2050, and child undernutrition would be difficult to eradicate (and is projected to increase in some regions in some MA scenarios)
        • Globally, the equilibrium number of plant species is projected to be reduced by roughly 10–15% as the result of habitat loss over the period of 1970 to 2050 ( low certainty )
      Child undernourishment in 2050 under MA Scenarios

      • Changes in food requirements for animals (more or less residues, more or less grass)
      • Changes in feed efficiency per animal
      Bas Eickhout, IMAGE: from global to local
    • 24. Where does the food and feed demand come from?
      • Using a macro-economic agricultural trade model
      • Inputs like capital, labour and land determine amount of production per region
      • Price elasticities determine type of agricultural product and technology developments
      Bas Eickhout, IMAGE: from global to local
    • 25. Taking environmental constraints into account Source: Van Meijl et al., 2005
    • 26. Outlook
      • Increase in food and feed demand
      • Global trade regimes will change
      • Other service will be required from land (bio-energy)
      • Competition for land both globally and locally
      Bas Eickhout, IMAGE: from global to local
    • 27. But this was very global How can this be used for national scenario development?
      • Use global model results as a context (what food feed, bio-energy and timber demand is required in your region)
      • Use global results as an input where possible (climate change, nitrogen deposition)
      • Use local experts to assess region-specific aspects (land-use change)

    • 46. Wilbert van Rooij, March 2009
      • Determine local consequences climate change on main drivers E.g. on Agriculture :
      • Change of productivity because of floods, drought, salinization ;  migration of land use to other areas
      •  extensification vs intensification  import of foodcrops?
      • E.g. on Biodiversity :  Habitat change
      •  Increased pressure on natural resources because of migration
        • Etcetera
      Effects of climate change on land use scenario
    • 47. Link with policy alternatives for climate change adaptation and mitigation + biodiversity conservation
      • Land use scenario should be as specific as possible on policy options or alternatives for climate adaptation and mitigation and biodiversity conservation.
      • Example: Possible options in relation to biodiversity conservation:
      • Extension of protected area system
      • Conversion to organic type of farming
      • Investing in intensification of agriculture (new technologies)
      • Reforestation programmes
      • Avoiding land abandonment
      • Sustainable use of natural ecosystems
    • 48. Link with CLUE-s model
    • 49. Demand: How much will be the change (in ha) of all major land uses? Spatial policies: New national parks, restricted areas, agricultural development zones Location characteristics: Infrastructure (new roads?) = change in accessibility Soil (soil degradation?) Population (migration because of globalisation?) Etc. Conversion settings Transition possibilities from one land use type to another Link with CLUE-s model
    • 50. National scenarios – essential characteristics The scenario should be: 1. Consistent with the assumptions of a selected archetype scenario 2. Consistent with current national trends 3. Creative! (do not use archetype as straitjacket) 4. As specific as possible on policy options for conversation 5. Linked with CLUE-s where possible
    • 51. National scenarios – essential elements Your scenario could have information on: Factors: Sectors: Actors: Economic development Agriculture * Government Population growth Tourism Businesses Consumption pattern Energy NGOs Technology Water Environmental Policies Forestry Scientists Protected area Institutions Urban area State of environment etc. (Biodiversity!) * Share intensive / extensive agr. area
    • 52. Translating storylines
      • Quantitative differences in land use areas (demand)
        • Agricultural demand
        • Intensification
        • Reforestation
        • Focus on export crops (perrennials)
      • Spatial differences (conversion matrix/region file)
        • Parks
        • Restricted areas
      • Behavioural differences (suitability maps/elasticities)
        • Subsidies
        • Awareness (erosion?)
        • Learning
        • Farming system change
    • 53. Quantifying demand changes for input CLUE
      • Arable land / Grassland
        • Compare with trend from FAO and IMAGE simulations
        • Only use trend (e.g. % change between 2000 and 2030)
        • Divide by perennial/arable crops depending on scenario conditions
      • Nature
        • Agricultural expansion mostly at cost of nature?
      • Quantification of land use scenarios essential for model to allocate future land use  production of future land use map
    • 54. Example FAO statistics
    • 55. Example IMAGE simulation output
    • 56. Wilbert van Rooij, May 2011 Bridging gap between numeric and geographical data: Baseline scenario 1: Extract numeric data from available resources: A: Global: FAO (website), Global Assessments (MA, OECD, GBO, IPCC) B: National: Development reports (agricultural + forestry department Outlooks (Vietnam: Agenda 21, MDG report, etc) Census data from statistical department Specialists (Socio-Economists. Agronomists, Forestry planners, Environmentalists, etc) 2: Aggregate land use classes So that you can compare spatial and numeric data and for which you have future data 3: Create trends, historical and for planned time horizon 4: Compare geographical areas aggregated land use classes of the land use map with the areas derived from non spatial sources 5: Interpret reasons for difference, adjust numeric data and use relative differences for creation of demand table
    • 57. Wilbert van Rooij, March 2009 Bridging gap between numeric and geographical data: Baseline scenario + policy option
      • Determine different trends in land use change because of implementation of selected policy option(s)
      • Analyze national policies / plans with respect to climate adaptation and mitigation
      • Example adaptation: Support to farmers who want to change land use type: for example to more drought resistant crop types
      • Example mitigation: Increasing imports reduces pressure on natural resources
      • And finally quantify these changes in the demand table for this policy option. Per policy option 1 demand table.
    • 58. Example scenario: Vietnam
      • 1: Baseline scenario :
      • Cropland demand: IMAGE OECD baseline scenario + 25% for 2030
        • - Cropland diversification: extensive (80%) and intensive (20%)
      • Plantation demand: increment of 500 km 2 /year.
      • Primary forest assumed to remain constant
      • 2: Biodiversity conservation policy option:
      • Primary forest: total forest cover (plantation + primary class) in 2030 will reach 40% of country land area
      • Protected areas (PAs) increase from 7% to 10% of the land:
        • - existing parks and primary forests above 1000 m
      • Strict law enforcement (no Land use change inside PA’s)
    • 59.
