The aim of this paper is to describe a methodology which combines local land use change scenarios, involving local stakeholders, and a runoff model, considering spatio-temporal crop distribution according to farmers' specific rules. This methodology is applied on the Saussay watershed in Upper Normandy (France). More generally, this methodology is a contribution to translate qualitative information from scenarios storylines to quantitative model inputs parameters that can be used to compute quantitative scenario evaluation. The proposed approach provides a useful source of information for assessing the responses of surface runoff of future land use changes
