Jutta Becker Decision Support and Modelling
In the different key areas (climate, natural resources, risk management) the issue of creating “simple” models and the use of those models for decision making is an important topic for a lot actors. Nevertheless the requirements of simple models are, in order to be used by the public, stakeholders and decision makers have to be determined. The potential to create visual information, to support the decision making process, to better understand and prevent rebound effects and to make the impacts of actions visible for everyone who is interested should be further explored (action research).
(This research demand has been identified in several workshops and expert meetings)
We are interested in your experience and comments:
- Which kind of models are used in your environment?
- Which further requirements have to be determined on your opinion to improve the usage of this models?
- Where do you need visual information for your decision making and which further research is required?
- What kind of rebound effects and impacts of action have to be visualized?

Thank you for your interest.
In our department of Limnology institute of Ecology at the TU-Berlin we were doing research on sustainable development in Europe. The starting point was the identification of water as the primary energy dissipative medium and in interaction with the living landcover as the various plants the basis of subsistency (This is the daily needed requirements of all kind of organisms and societies). The irreversible bottleneck for all societies is th losses of matter needed by the plants like nutrients and minerals from the topsoils from the landscape to the seas.
This losses have increased in most parts of Europe by improving "agriculture" from initially 15-25 kg of bases such as Ca, Mg, K, and nutrients such as P, and N,/ha and year up to roughly 1000 to 1500 kg /ha and year within the period where landuse spread almost everywhere. The highest increase in losses happened in the last three centuries.
We found that subsistency was mostly attaced by amelioration, and other interference with vegetation and watercycle.
The loss of all needed material leads to the breakdown of the plant cover together with the local loss of the watercycles.
We think that these basic processes are the needed hardware for societies and for this reason the restoration measures have to be taken at the physical level of the environment. Water in intraction with the vegetation are therefore the most important components of the environment, as are the atmosphere, the climate, soil fertility, water and food production. Since all other social factors are of software character we think that ICT-sustain should be in the first hand used to control the water and vegetation cycles everywhere to improve the carrying capacity for societies. This could be a first point to be considered in the present work. With best regards Willy Ripl
Jutta Becker Trans-disciplinary challenge for successful implementation of new technologies
Very often cultural challenges have to be stressed regarding the application and acceptance of information and communication technologies before pure technological ones. In order to promote better understanding and to make local (qualitative) knowledge available stakeholders have to be integrated with the aim to take into account the specific needs of the involved actors and actor-groups. The requirements, social and cultural barriers of the users need to be analysed and impediments to making data freely accessible need to be addressed.
(This research demand has been identified in several workshops and expert meetings)
We are interested in your experience and comments:
- Are there cultural barriers in your work or research environment?
- How do you experience the involvement of different actors and actor-groups with there specific needs?
- Is local (qualitative ) knowledge available for all involved stakeholders or are there further demands?
Jutta Becker Education
The aspect of ICT and education can be addressed in several ways. One the one hand ICT is seen as an important tool for education to support awareness building on environmental issues. On the other hand e-learning applications can reduce (at least theoretically) the environmental impact by reducing the need for travel. Last but not least there is the importance of educating people (stake-holders, local community …) in the use of ICT in order to facilitate collection of and access to data. In this respect the issue of the language barrier for the application of ICT has to be mentioned.
(This research demand has been identified in several workshops and expert meetings)
We are interested in your experience and comments:
- Do you use e-learning applications and what experience you made with?
- What role in education has ICT in your environment and does it support more awareness on environmental issues?
- Do the people have to be educated more in using ICT and why?
- Are there language barriers in your environment?
Jutta Becker Information exchange – communication – co-operation
Throughout all key areas, aspects of information exchange, communication and cooperation are important. The terms used to describe the needs, may differ from key area to key area. A development of a data commons has been addressed by experts in the area of ICT for Agriculture and Biodiversity Conservation with focus on not only store data electronically but to create a vibrant environment for exchange of data. The need for an inventory of best practice cases and case-studies for the application of new technologies has been expressed in the climate change context, called a “central inventory of industrial symbiosis projects” in the industrial ecology workshop. The term of “environmental observatories” has been coined concerning natural resources management for collecting and documenting stakeholder knowledge.
(This research demand has been identified in several workshops and expert meetings)
We are interested in your experience and comments:
- What experience do you have concerning available case-studies?
- Is it easy to cooperate and exchange information with stakeholders or other project members?
- Or do you need more data commons, repositories or other information bases to communicate more efficiently?
