An article written by Margarita Mediavilla and Khaled Diab on LOCOMOTION has been published in The Ecologist, which presents one of the main improvements this project is working on in the Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) field when analysing in a holistic manner the sustainability and feasibility of future scenarios.

In this context, LOCOMOTION will take into account the natural limits and limitations of the biosphere, including the feedback relationships between the economy and physical and biological ecosystems:

“LOCOMOTION seeks to address the reality that our economic activities profoundly damage ecosystems, but also the fact that the future shortage of energy and the damage done to the biosphere, have the potential to hurt the economy as well, in a kind of vicious cycle, unless we find ways to cushion the transition”
