Abstract: This technical note aims to present the progresses done towards the evaluation of the possible application of the Land Use Modelling Platform in a global context or anyhow outside the geographical borders of Europe. The definition and computation of demands for land-uses are the first element to be appraised since are essential inputs for the modelling platform. The note describes the methodology adopted to compute the demand for urban land (this includes land uses related to residences, leisure facilities and small commercial and industrial activities) in 10 region worldwide according to a set of different scenarios of demographic exspansion.
