Inception Workshop: Building Capacity for Land Use Change Modeling

Bangkok, Thailand 7 to 8 October 2014

This workshop launched a new CEP activity aiming to strengthen land-use modeling capacity in the GMS, targeting government planners and academic institutions.

The activity will focus on:

  • Enhancing existing land use change simulation software to meet the needs of GMS planners.
  • Developing a network of national academic institutions to provide modeling support to government agencies.

Among the 35 participants were lead activity implementers from the University of Amsterdam, GMS government representatives, and collaboration partners representing USAID’s Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests programSERVIR, and a team from FAO.

Participants were briefed on concept of land use change modeling and planned activities, and provided feedback on their expectations and implementing arrangements.  

During the first phase (until March 2015), the focus will be on developing a modern, integrated user interface for the CLUMondo model, making it easier and more intuitive to use.

From June 2015, attention will turn to a ‘training of trainers’ program targeting GMS universities and government staff. And from late 2015 through to end-2016, an academic curriculum will be developed and the model piloted in government planning processes.
