Workshop: GMS Land-Use Change Modeling Network

Bangkok, Thailand 9 to 10 March 2017

This workshop brought together members of the GMS land-use change modeling network to share project results and develop proposals for future work.

Since late-2014, the 33 member network of government planners and academics from the six GMS countries have worked together to learn and apply the latest methodologies and tools to model future land use change. The network was established as one of the key deliverables of the CEP project ‘Building Capacity for Land Use Change Modeling’ and this workshop was its final activity.

While participants reflected on their learning, including from case studies that focused on Cambodia and Lao PDR, they also looked to the future with each country presenting project proposals to apply land-use modeling. The workshop wrapped up with a discussion on how to link science and policy to ensure modeling results have real opportunities to practically influence policies and development planning.

The Free University of Amsterdam organized the workshop and was the CEP implementing partner for the activity.
