SENSOR Sustainability Impact Assessment: Tools for Environmental, Social and Economic Effects of Multifunctional Land Use in European Regions

Country: European Union
Start Date:   1/12/2004         Duration: 49 months         Project Type: RTD
Contract Number: 
Organisation Type:  EC Project
Contaminated land-->Wider impacts / sustainability-->Assessment tools
Contaminated land-->Wider impacts / sustainability-->Sustainable / green remediation
Project objectives:
The EU-FP6 Integrated Project SENSOR will develop science based ex-ante Sustainability Impact Assessment Tools (SIAT) to support decision making on policies 
related to multifunctional land use in European regions.
Project Summary:
Sustainability of land use in European regions is a central point of policy and management decisions at different levels of governance. Implementation of 
European policies designed to promote and protect multifunctional land use requires the urgent development of robust tools for the assessment of different
scenarios' impacts on the environmental, social and economic sustainability in European regions. SENSOR will build, validate and implement Sustainability Impact Assessment Tools (SIAT), including databases and spatial reference frameworks for the
analysis of land and human resources in the context of land use policies for Europe.
Achieved Objectives:
The SENSOR project is structured into seven interrelated modules. Each module consists of several work packages. To ensure full integration of research components 
particularly with regard to sectors and disciplines, the structure follows a procedural approach. The modules are: M1: Scientific co-ordination and project management M2: European land use scenario assessment and forecasting M3: Regional sustainability problems, risks and thresholds M4: SIAT integration and end user tool M5: Integrated data and indicator management M6: Sustainability issues in sensitive regions M7: Stakeholder participation and institutional analysis M8: SENSOR TTC: Transferability test to China and MERCOSUR
