MEDMONT - Tools for evaluating investment in Mediterranean mountain areas - an integrated framework for sustainable development

Contract nr: QLK5-CT-2000-01031
Project type: RS (Research and Technological Development Project)
Starting date: 01-01-2001
Duration: 36 months
Total cost: 1,371,118 EUR
EC Contribution: 951,015 EUR
Scientific Officer: Sjur BAARDSEN
Research topic: 5.5. Sustainable development of rural and other relevant areas

Abstract:
No integrated framework for evaluating multiple impacts of investment projects in the context of sustainable development for Mediterranean mountain areas is currently available. This research will produce such a methodological framework to support ex ante and ex post investment evaluation and monitoring decisions. The framework will integrate tools (indicators) through i) a natural resource base and capability evaluation for forestry, grazing, agriculture, wildlife, tourism and water/soil; ii) a social and economic evaluation; iii) an institutional evaluation; and iv) an integrated evaluation based on multiple criteria analysis and cost benefit analysis,where this is relevant. The evaluation process will be spatially referenced through identification and mapping of meaningful spatial entities at the appropriate scales for development analyses in five study areas across the Mediterrannean region.
