SCENARIO-BUILDING AND URBAN METABOLISM It is important to consider soil and land quality in scenario development. Could this scenario building be connected to urban metabolism methodology in order to give them a more prominent role in development of metabolic insights? Or to find the mutual synergies? On the otherhand we see the natural resources and especially soil and land are not easily considered in urban metabolism methodology. How can we increase the role of soil, land, ecology and ecosystems in these new methodologies to saveguard urban quality of life .possibly, currently fundingnbal@ovam.be

The Czech Science Foundation (also known as the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic, GA CR) was established in 1993 as the main independent public organization with the aim to support basic research in the Czech Republic and promote international collaboration of researchers and research teams on the bilateral and multilateral levels. On the basis of calls for proposals, the Czech Science Foundation provides financial support for experienced as well as young and early-stage researchers. Moreover, it funds bilateral projects together with projects carried out within international research programmes. The subject of a project proposal is determined by the applicant (bottom-up principle). Around 2,500 project proposals are submitted to the GA CR every year, of which more than one-fourth obtain financial support. The GA CR invites proposals in all disciplines of basic research.

Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry
Jaana KaipainenJaana.Kaipainen@mmm.fihttp://mmm.fi/en/frontpageyespossiblyyesAt the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the core task of research and development activities is to proactively produce knowledge, expertise and innovations to support decision-making, promote the competitiveness of economic activities and ensure the sustainable use of renewable natural resources. The Ministry’s research and development appropriation is used, in particular, to fund research, development and study projects that support planning, foresight, monitoring and impact assessment activities concerning policy measures and legislation. The Development Fund for Agriculture and Forestry (Makera) grants R&D funding for research activities that benefit the agri-food sector across a broad front. The main focus is on research concerning the sustainable development of the profitability and competitiveness of livelihoods. Makera also provides funding for research on reindeer husbandry, natural means of livelihood and development activities in the Skolt Sámi area and rural research and development projects.

Research on comparative assessment of land management options will support realizing synergies and trading off conflicts between different societal demands with regard to land use and land management.

  • For founders
  • For endusers
  • For researchers
  • For citizens
Funding research on trade-offs and synergies between societal goals, will enable decision-makers to develop land use options that deliver progress on multiple goals simultaneously, in an integrated and coordinated way, thus recognizing that these goals are intertwined and cannot be addressed separately without adverse effects on other equally relevant goals. Such research will help creating windows of opportunity for sustainable economic and social development.
Researching trade-offs and synergies between societal goals will enable balanced land management decisions to the benefit of all stakeholders.
Researchers are challenged to provide all information necessary to design cost-effective solutions in land management, i.e. on selecting land management approaches with the most favourable impacts. This also includes spatially optimized land use planning: what is the best use of land given its capacities to deliver ecosystem services.
Research on trade-offs and synergies between societal goals in land use planning and land management decisions, will highlight often overlooked public interests of land use, e.g. the protection of landscapes or environemntal friendly production of food, materials and energy, and hence will facilitate their consideration in the decision making process.

Given the scarcity of resources and the limited availability of natural capital, conflicts and trade-offs between the realization of societal goals that directly depend on sustainable land use and land management will be inevitable, although in some cases also synergies are possible. This calls for research that supports comparative assessment of land management options to balance all demands.

Research needs under this topic are concerned with analysing synergies and trade-offs between different (societal) goals with regard to land use as well as research needs regarding the comparative assessment of management options to balance conflicting demands. Such analysis is demanded as an input for transparent and evidence-based policy-making.
The following sub-topics can be distinguished (see also figure NI-4 below):
1) Conflicting societal goals, e.g. food security, supply of renewable energies, nature conservation etc.;
2) Cost-effective solutions in land management, i.e. how to select land management approaches with the most favourable impacts; and
3) Spatially optimized land uses; how to most efficiently use natural capital in space to address societal challenges.

Activities: knowledge transfer, knowledge creation, demonstration, training and education, survey and monitoring, networking

Goals: No poverty, Zero hunger, Good health Quality, Gender equality, Clean water & sanitation, Affodable and clean energy, Industry innovation and infrastructure, Sustainable cities and communities, Responsible consumption, Climate action, Life below water, Life on land, Peace and justive, Partnership for the goals
