PLAN OF WORK

Hemos concebido el desarrollo de la herramienta SPANDAM a través de varios componentes o paquetes de trabajo. El proyecto es liderado por la Universidad de Valladolid. Además, cada uno de estos paquetes es liderado por una de las entidades socias del consorcio, en función de su especial conocimiento y experiencia en esa área de trabajo.

DATA.

The objective of this work is to support that the model has good quality. To do this, first define the data requirements for the operation of the model, aiming at the existing databases in terms of quality and requirements. Subsequently, it is a selecjust compile and the full database of the project and its management. Then an assessment is made of the quality and reliability of the data. Finally, we develop an adequate infrastructure for the use of the data, and the open dissemination.

INDICATORS.

The general objective in this area is to develop indicators of attractiveness of specific categories of territorial areas at the municipal level, provincial and regional levels according to their main economic characteristics and socio-demographic, as well as their material resources, natural and human.

To achieve this goal, we consider all available variables that directly and indirectly affects decisions related to mobility (both immigration and emigration). We will consider not only the labour migration, but also the migration for other reasons: migration, lifestyle migration, family migration, environmental and other. In addition, not only we will consider the factors that attract new residents, but also those factors which retain the people that are already living in the areas of interest.

Course dates:

November 2021 – January 2023

Universidad de Salamanca – USAL

  1. Review of the literature. Review the state of the art in relation with the concept of attractiveness of the territory.
  2. Development of indicators combined attractive to residents.
  3. Development of indicators combined attractive to investors.
  4. Index of attractive specific. We develop indexes of attraction specific to certain segments of the population, according to the age or level of qualification, among others.
  • Report on theoretical foundations and previous proposals of index of attractive.
  • Full description of the indicators of attractiveness.
  • Review of the indicators of development.
  • Evaluation of indicators of attractiveness.

SCENARIOS.

The goal in this area is to develop a set of possible scenarios at national and international level that may condition the local development and its indicators of reference.

The evolution of the economic variables and demographic national and international level, as well as the european and national policies, constitute the framework for the development at the local level and the possible application of measures local policies. The set of variables that define these international trends and national determine the scenarios. In this area we will set the narrative for a set of scenarios, selecting the most significant variables for the quantification of these scenarios and obtaining the projections of these variables. To do this, will be taken as a starting point scenarios that are already defined in the literature, and international agencies. To perform the projections of some of the variables may be used in the model MEDEAS (global and european) and the MODESLOW (national level), both models developed by the University of Valladolid.

Course dates:

November 2021 – October 2022

  1. International stage. Selection of possible international stages, in accordance with the provisions of evolution of the main variables of economic, social, demographic, and environmental.
  2. National stage. Selection of possible national scenarios, in accordance with the provisions of evolution of the main variables of economic, social, demographic, and environmental.
  3. Estimation of the effects of the variables defined in the scenarios on the model of local development and its indicators. The analysis of the causal relationships between the variables of reference scenarios and variables in the model of local development.
  • Report on the international stage, and european to be used in the model.
  • Report on the national scenarios to be used in the model.
  • Report on the identification of the effects of the variables of the scenarios on the variables in the model.
  • Identification of scenarios and their variables.

MODELING.

The main objective in this area is the modeling and the programming of the structure of the local model. This model will be applied to the case study to show its capabilities. You will develop a model of reference demographic for the 17 autonomous communities, with the available data and projections under different scenarios. The local development model will be developed using the methodology of system Dynamics. This model will include modules, among others, to: demography, economy, health services, educational services, social services, housing and urban planning, transport and communication services, environment, cultural resources and heritage, and the environment.
