WP7 (Systems analysis and synthesis) will integrate social, economic and environmental data and knowledge from WP2, 5 and 6 to explore the impact of biodiversity sensitive farming on the natural assets of agroecological systems, their sustainability, and resilience to regional and global change. A combination of social-ecological modelling and natural capital accounting methods will be used to: 1) estimate of the response of biodiversity to collective landscape scale biodiversity management strategies and identify effective management practices; 2) identify the multiple cost and benefits resulting from collective landscape scale biodiversity management and to identify the drivers and barriers to these; 3) quantify the impact on natural asset status of biodiversity sensitive farming practice; and 4) develop a decision support tool (FRAMEtest) to facilitate the prototyping and testing of biodiversity sensitive farming-based systems and identifying effective management and governance practice.
