Global and Regional Advances in Studying the Water-Food Nexus

IIASA is hosting a workshop to discuss global and regional advances in studying the water-food nexus, with a special focus on an ongoing China-IIASA project “Grey Water Footprint and Water Scarcity Assessment”.

There is an increasing need to quantify human appropriated water use and essential ecosystem flow requirements. On the first day, the workshop’s morning session is introduced by a presentation on IIASA’s Future Water Scenarios Initiative, and then continues to discuss new ‘colourful’ water research in a context of global water scarcity, and advances in regional crop modeling for improved soil and water conservation. In the afternoon session, several topics related to the biophysical and economic models developed in IIASA’s ESM program will be presented.

The second day will focus on the application of these insights and methodologies within the ongoing IIASA-China project “Grey water footprint and water scarcity assessment”.
