This conference will introduce:
The PARCEL online application, that can be used by local actors for assessing the consequences of agricultural modes of production and food consumption and to design scenarios for the transition of agricultural systems and land use changes at the regional level.
The results of the study carried out by UCLouvain on the vegetable sector in Wallonia: its cropping systems and the current organization of the sector, as well as three prospective scenarios towards 2050.
The presentations will be followed by a discussion on the relevant tools for thinking and implementing transition dynamics.
