CEP makes land demand modeling easier, more accessible

A new CEP-supported land demand allocation model was introduced to a global land science audience in Beijing in late October.

CLUMondo is one of the most widely used land allocation models worldwide and was recently updated through CEP funding. The Institute of Environmental Studies (VU Amsterdam, The Netherlands), featured the model in a session on land use change in the GMS, held recently at the 3rd Global Land Project Open Science Meeting in Beijing.

CLUMondo helps strategic planners to preview the outcomes of different land demand scenarios, compare impacts, and optimize plans and the design of mitigation measures. New features of the latest version include an ecosystem services demand module and improved functions to view maps and statistical results. Also, the user interface was redesigned to be more user-friendly, and the model now has integrated free software for all components.
