WP5: Bioeconomy

We aim to develop an interdisciplinary economic-ecological model that allows an assessment of how to achieve economically viable reindeer densities, which is coupled to pasture dynamics, optimal slaughtering strategies, economic outcome and public policy.

Main Objective – To develop and refine an economic-ecological model, and to assess how stochastic winters and spring conditions together with climate and various institutional setups influence the bioeconomy of the Fennoscandian reindeer husbandry at different scales.
