The lack of consideration for Ecosystem Services (ES) values in current decision-making is recognised as one of the main reasons leading to an intense competition and arguably unsustainable use of well-located available land. In this paper, we present a framework for the Valuation Of Terrestrial Ecosystem Services (VOTES), aiming at structuring a methodology that is applicable for valuing ES in a given area through a set of indicators that are both meaningful for local actors and scientifically constructed. Examples from a case study area in central Belgium are used to illustrate the methodology: a stepwise procedure starting with the valuation of ES at present. The valuation of the social, biophysical and economic dimensions of ES are based on current land-use patterns. Subsequently, scenarios of land-use change are used to explore potential losses (and/or gains) of ES in the future of the study area. With the VOTES framework, we aim at [1] incorporating stakeholders inputs to widen the valuation process and increase trust in policy-oriented approach; [2] integrating valuation of ES with a sustainable development stance accounting for land-use change; and [3] developing suggestions to policy-makers for integrating ES monitoring in policy developments.

L’ouvrage est essentiellement un guide et un livre de référence où chacun (professionnel, enseignant, étudiant...) peut aller chercher des réponses aux questions qu’il se pose. Articulé en trois temps (définir son projet commercial, choisir la zone de chalandise et choisir l’emplacement commercial), il propose un texte court cherchant à traduire l’essentiel ainsi que de nombreux documents (45 au total) et fiches techniques (20 en tout sur des problèmes plus spécifiques).

Ecosystem service (ES) is a conceptual linkage between biodiversity and human well-being. In a context of increased urbanization combined with the effects of climate change, the level of biodiversity is expected to be reduced, and from the point of view of the ES, the loss of biodiversity is not only an environmental problem for itself, but is also a major issue for society’s sustainable development. Thus, it is necessary to identify adaptations of ecosystem use and management that will minimize the biodiversity loss while maintaining the production of ES for the society. To achieve this goal, ES must be valuated, but this valuation needs to consider a broad set of goals that include ecological sustainability and social fairness, along with the traditional economic goal of efficiency. Participatory approaches should be used in all ES valuation steps. Indeed, local stakeholders and end-users have a central role in the valuation process, as they are the direct beneficiaries of the provision of services. Moreover, biodiversity management must be focused onto human needs to deliver more integrated policy and management at a landscape-scale and be more firmly directed towards human well-being. Here, we present the framework developed within the VOTES (Valuation Of Terrestrial Ecosystem Services in a multifunctional peri-urban space) project for integrating all these factors in a quantitative tool designed for a sustainable landscape management, as well as for the evaluation and the monitoring of ES for policy designers. The originality is that this framework will provide an integrated valuation of ES in a spatially and temporally explicit way, based on the following steps: social valuation, biophysical valuation, economic valuation, landscape modelling & dynamics and finally integration of ecosystem service indicators. The biophysical assessment and landscape modelling steps rest on the combined use of two spatial models: a dynamic vegetation model (CARAIB DVM) and an agent-based model (ABM). These models will be used to construct future (dynamic) scenarios that include the major driving forces of the system (e.g., global socio-economic context, urbanization pressure, climate change, etc) together with adapted management. The computed scenarios will provide the changes in the biophysical system consistent with the socio-economic evolution, including changes in land use, crop productivity, carbon sequestration, or more generally ecosystem structure and function. This will allow an estimate of a change in the provision of ES through time, so that the sustainability of ES under the studied scenarios can be assessed. The framework is meant to be applicable to any given landscape, but here it is applied to a case study area in central Belgium, known for its strong periurban character, due to the proximity to Brussels.

This work attempts to analyze how firms specializing in retail clothing deployed spatially in order to conquer the Belgian market. Two types of outlet networks were constructed and compared to analyze the links between the current distribution of these networks and their deployment in space-time since their arrival on the market. The exercise was carried out on 53 networks in the clothing sector in the Belgian market, which represents 1667 stores found in a database for which the followin data is known: location, year of establishment, franchise management, brand name, group. This data fed two factor analyses used to construct the typology of current networks and classification of modes of deployment used by the networks studied. Today’s networks consist of small networks of large cities in the north, small networks of large cities and present in some shopping centers, medium-sized networks present in city centers and shopping malls, large networks located preferentially in peripheral districts with low level equipment and competition and finally large urban ubiquitous networks. Deployment modes are divided into ascendinghier-archical diffusion, nonspecific diffusion, constant national hierarchical deployment, descending hierarchical diffusion, particular deployment from three polarities that represent the triangle of fashion in Belgium and finally diffusion by contagion.

The empirical analysis relies on the competitive poles program in Walloon and on the ACCORD project (Action Concerte ́e de Coope ́ration Re ́gionale de De ́veloppement) in Quebec. The comparison will allow discussing the implementation and regional embedding of these programs and will reveal the similarities and the differences between the structure, the organization and the deployment of these strategies in the various regions targeted.
