LF411 - Share of residential areas over the total land area (LUISA Platform REF2014)

Collection: LUISA : Land-Use based Integrated Sustainability Assessment modelling platform 

Description

The share of residential areas over the total land area indicator aims to assess the proportion of land used for residential, sport and leisure purposes and green urban areas over the total surface area. The level of detail of this indicator is per NUTS0 and NUTS2.

  • Abstract

    The LUISA land-use modelling framework is used routinely for integrated sustainability assessments of EC policies.. All policy impacts are assessed by comparing policy scenario model results with a reference scenario. This reference scenario is frequently updated to take into account new developments in land-use modelling practice, and to take into account new projections offered by the various sectoral models that supply information to LUISA. This report details all changes made in 2014 as updates to the EU Reference scenario 2013 with regard to land-use claims and the LUISA spatial allocation mechanism. Finally, new developments related to the reporting and visualization of LUISA model results are highlighted.

  • Abstract

    The impacts of current and planned policy initiatives can be simulated by using modelling tools and indicators, which help determine the effectiveness of policies in attaining targets. The Land Use-based Integrated Sustainability Assessment (LUISA) modelling platform was configured to assess the spatial impact of the “EU Energy Reference scenario 2013” on the efficient use of natural resources in the EU-28 in a short time period (2010-2020) and in a long term vision (2010-2050). A set of Resource Efficiency (RE) indicators were computed to measure [1] the progress towards the efficient use of land and water as a resource and [2] the performance on the actions and milestones on natural capital and ecosystems proposed in the RE roadmap, in particular biodiversity, safeguarding clean air, and land and soils. The modelling results show that by 2050: [1] the share of built-up area in the EU-28 will increase by 1%; [2] the EU-28 will use the land less efficiently; [3] the water productivity is expected to increase on average 8%; [4] the landscape fragmentation in the EU-28 will show no significant changes [5] and the PM10 concentrations in urban air and population exposed will remain constant.
