SENSOR Tools for Impact Assessment in multifunctional land use

Type of practice:

SENSOR was an FP6 Integrated Research project (2004-2009) that developed tools for impact assessment of across land use sectors, which allows the user to simulate the impacts of fundamental changes of policy orientation, e.g. the Common Agricultural Policy . The main products: SIAT (Sustainability Impact Assessment Tool) - is a quantitative multi-modelling tool providing prospective scenario assessment across disciplines, sectors and sustainability dimensions. It includes the valuation of simulated environmental, social and economic effects in terms of sustainability impacts. FoPIA (Framework for Participatory Impact Assessment) is a qualitative impact assessment tools. Both tools are complementary intending to contribute to the European Sustainable Development Strategy.
