The .Systems Research Network for Ecoregional Land Use Planning in Support of Natural Resource Management in Tropical Asia (SysNet). was financed under the Ecoregional Fund, administered by the International Service for National Agricultural Research (ISNAR). The objective of the project was to develop and evaluate methodologies and tools for land use analysis, and apply them at the subnational scale to support agricultural and environmental policy formulation. In the framework of this project, the land use planning and analysis system LUPAS was developed. In this volume, the highlights of the project period between October 1999 and June 2000 are illustrated through presentations of the results of the most recent scenario analyses for the four case study regions (Haryana State, India; Kedah- Perlis Region, Malaysia; Can Tho Province, Vietnam; and Ilocos Norte Province, Philippines) . Subsequently, special attention is paid to the development and description of the user interface and interaction with the stakeholders in the case study areas. The volume concludes with a brief outline of the most important challenges ahead.
