Description: In the era of development, technological evolution and population expansion, policies play a fundamental role in the maintenance of the economic, social and environmental wellbeing. Sustainable development is the general target of society to be ensured by policy decisions considering climate change, biodiversity loss, protection of endangered species, and so forth. Indicators have a fundamental role in providing new insights and clear statements by assessing progress and defining behaviours. In this paper, we test an application framework for the exploration of sustainability limits. We developed a set of sustainability limits for indicators and applied them in a Latin American context. We used QUICKScan, a tool to support the decision in participatory processes., by attempting to visualize any conceptual scenarios. Brazil was the case study country and the indicators used are: forest area coverage, carbon sequestration, the probability of being infected by Leishmaniosis and available water per capita. We present some results which illustrate the complexity of managing land use for multiple services, and the trade-offs that inevitably result. By visualizing the current situation and comparing outcomes under future scenarios, we can support discussion with local experts to explore the policy options at local to regional scales.
