NEWS UPDATE:  PASHMINA hosted its FINAL CONFERENCE on 16 October 2012 in Brussels, Belgium.

Final results obtained by the project consortium were presented relating to the development and experimentation of a new generation of tools to better assess the interaction between the economy and the environment, the paradigm shifts in the energy‐transport‐environment nexus and land use and territorial functions, and the shifts beyond GDP measurement and the economic growth paradigm.   The results, including policy recommendations formulated and questions that emerged were discussed.

Final project results are available by visiting Deliverables.

ABOUT PASHMINA PROJECT

The project will  show that it is possible to better address global changes in a long term time perspective (2030--2050), making a first development of tools - new generations of models and indicators - with enhanced capabilities to take into account the interaction between the economy and the environment, paradigm shifts in the energy-transport-environment nexus and the land-use and territorial functions.

The objectives of PASHMINA will include 1. production of exploratory scenarios (Qualitative storylines) of future global change options up to 2030 and 2050, complemented by a Quantitative analysis of key development indicators (GDP, well being, etc.) undertaken by means of global long term meta-models (WP1 ) 2. analysis of the consequences of the paradigm shifts in the energy-transport-environment nexus related to the urban functions: housing, mobility, recreation, etc. (WP2) 3. analysis of the possible paradigm shifts in the land use arod territorial functions related to agriculture, forestry and more in general ecosystem services: ego biofuels, biodiversity, ecosystems metabolism, etc. (WP3) 4. first development a new generation of global indicators and models, starting from already existing sustainabilily accounting and general equilibrium modelling frameworxs and adapting these to make them (more) sensitive to paradigm shifts in the long-term perspective (WP4) 5. pilot assessment of possible adaptation and mitigation strategies to tackle with different paradigm shifts, evaluating their trade -oils (WP5). 6. to produce a comparative evaluation of the advancements in modelling tools achieved by PASHMINA, and to disseminate those in the scientific and stakeholders communities by means of innovative dissemination tools (virtual library, wiki-web tools, webGIS application) and other dissemination activities (WP6).
