Human impact, year 2032 (sustainability first scenario)
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The GLOBIO-2 model is based on settlements and modern infrastructure such as roads, powerlines and pipelines. This map presents the possible situation in 2032, using the GEO-3 security first scenario. This scenario suggests a new environment and development paradigm emerging in response to the challenge of sustainability, supported by new, more equitable values and institutions.
