With increasingly globalised economies, sustainable development becomes an even greater challenge to both policy and science because new opportunities and unknown risks created by globalisation are unevenly distributed between regions and between people. Policy should be able to provide measures to help different regions and communities benefit from these opportunities and cope with these risks in a sustainable manner, and science should take the challenge to contribute to design such measures. This research project aims to contribute to this challenge by developing an integrated modelling framework. Such framework will be implemented through a multiscalar & multiagent model (MultiMode) in which national impacts of global changes trickle down to the local communities through the adaptive decisions of institutions and agents at the regional, provincial and communal levels.
