Climate Change-Human Behavior: Towards Integrated Modeling

Journal Name:

Publication Year:

Abstract (2. Language): 
The aim of this paper is to contribute to understand the problematic of climate change by given an integrated model of ecological system. This modeling, in which we use several techniques that we seemed able to deal the problem, combines between the classical variants of climate change (temperature, water, …) and the human behavior towards the respect of the environment. To give the model, we use systematically two essential mathematical techniques: (1) Dynamic systems that allow studying complex systems with a systemic vision by describing the different variables of the system and analyzing the causal interactions between these variables. It is part of an approach of decision support. (2) Fuzzy logic theory used to estimate the qualitative variable, for us human behavior, influencing causes and impacts of climate change
