A novel approach towards improving decision-making for resource efficiency, based on the water-land-food-energy-climate Nexus!

  1. 1. A novel approach towards improving decision-making for resource efficiency, based on the water-land-food-energy-climate Nexus WEAM4i Final Workshop Xavier Domingo AAI Research Line Manager Smart Management Systems Dpt. xavier.domingo@eurecat.org 06/04/2017
  2. 2. 2 OUR FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN… Water Land Energy Food Climate ? All these elements are linked together, and constitute the Nexus. Global competition between land, water and energy resources is increasing, and is exacerbated by climate change. Putting pressure on one of these areas can create pressures on the others. Management of the Nexus is critical to securing the efficient use of our scarce resources, under climate change.
  3. 3. 3 SIM4NEXUS project • Title: Sustainable Integrated Management FOR the NEXUS of water-land-food-energy-climate for a resource-efficient Europe • Topic: H2020 WATER-2b-2015 (Integrated approaches to food security, low-carbon energy, sustainable water management and climate change mitigation) • Grant: 7,9M€ • Duration: 4 year project (June 2016 – May 2020) • Consortium: 25 partners from 15 European countries • Co-ordination: Wageningen University & Research
  4. 4. 4 SIM4NEXUS objectives SIM4NEXUS has four objectives: • To adopt existing knowledge and develop new expertise on the Nexus, • To reduce uncertainties of how policies, governance and institutions affect complex changing environmental systems, • To showcase the implementation by a network of regional and national case studies in Europe • To valorise the project outputs by suitable business models.
  5. 5. 5 Previous related research: Thematic models Several well-established and developed “thematic” models” do exist: • Simulating some (but not all five) Nexus components • At some scales (e.g. Global) • Not necessarily targeting resource efficiency • Some targeting GHG • Or biodiversity • Or the economy • But not all…
  6. 6. 6 SIM4NEXUS - main idea • Using the “thematic models” to identify the links and the gaps in the Nexus • With diverse Data Sources and Climate change scenarios • Running the thematic models • Combining outputs from the thematic models using Complexity Science methodologies: • System Dynamics mainly (previous expertise) • Cellular Automata • Fuzzy Pattern Recognition • Material Flow Analysis • To develop “Nexus” models for specific Case Studies and scenarios • To develop a Serious Game for education and decision makers
  7. 7. 7 Conceptual structure
  8. 8. 8 Try out scenarios With local stakeholders: 3 at regional level, 5 at national level, 2 transboundary At higher level (educational): 1 at European level, 1 at Global level The virtual world is designed according to realistic metadata Each player manages own objectives and indicators, and can only take specific actions according to the role assigned GeoPlatform, gathering all metadata Settings Case studies The game involves players, acting according to chosen roles The Serious Game concept
  9. 9. 9 … Evaluation by players Actions by players Uncertainty, like financial crisis, flood, temperature changes, etc. Thematic models + SDM, calculating interlinkages between each Nexus component LEARNING BY PLAYING All Nexus components interacting together. Water, land, energy, food, climate Description of a scenario
