VALE [ONGOING] | Environmental and Economic evaluation of Urban Systems
The research project is aimed at defining an environmental and economic evaluation in the field of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the General Master Plan (PRGC) of Turin.
The methodology focuses on environmental and economic analysis and on land consumption assessment to define a cognitive and methodological contribution for the SEA of the Plan.
The environmental and economic assessment is integrated by the use of mathematical models to assess the impact of land-use change on the natural system, while on the other hand is integrated by economic indicators (presence of productive, industrial and commercial units).
Moreover, the integrated assessment will be able to support the definition of possible future transformation, as well to define resilient policies and actions.
This methodology should be integrated during decision-making processes to aid the definition of long-term urban policies.
