In order to reach our aim, we use the Multi-scale Integrated Models of Ecosystem Services (MIMES), coupled with techniques of:
- Ecological modelling and ecosystem services mapping and valuation,
- Geographic Information System (GIS),
- Environmentally-Extended Input-Output (EEIO) modelling,
- Land use prospective modelling.
This dynamic and multi-scale integrated model allows to evaluate the changes in ES provision induced by different scenarios of development over time and space, and at multiple scales (e.g. municipal, national, global).
