Modelling for local scale sustainability and decision-making support: reflections and difficulties

Abstract : This paper is about integrated modelling for decision-making support to sustainability policies at local scales. By "local scales" we mean sub-national scales like cities, employment catchment areas, or slightly larger scales like départements and régions, for France. The goal of this article is to share a certain number of our motivations, outlooks and experiences we acquired via the creation of our research group, which tackles this complex topic. In a first step, we identify three scientific domains that we consider to play a key role in local scale sustainability and for which improvement in available knowledge is crucial. In a second part, we discuss challenges and difficulties one is confronted with when one wants to work on the context considered here.
