An Integrated Modelling Framework for the Forest-based Bioeconomy

Sarah MubarekaGeospatial Semantic Array Programming, Original, Uncategorized

This paper describes the conceptual design of a regional modelling framework to assess scenarios for the forest-based bioeconomy. The framework consists of a core set of tools: a partial equilibrium model for the forest sector, a forestry dynamics model for forest growth and harvest, and a wood resources balance sheet. The framework can be expanded to include an energy model, a landuse model and a forest-owner decision model.
