A ground-breaking study into sustainable solutions to jointly meet water, energy and land demands at the global level, and also zooming into two large transboundary basins facing multiple development and environmental challenges: The Zambezi and the Indus. More
The Worldwide Fund for Nature South Africa (WWF-SA) has commissioned IIASA to assess pathways towards large-scale, sustainable aviation biofuel deployment in Sub-Saharan Africa. More
The project will develop comparative approaches to transboundary water resources environmental governance along the United States and Mexico border, with case studies of the Rio Grande/Río Bravo Basin and the Colorado River Basin More
The WFaS Fast-Track Analysis is a key component of the larger Water Futures and Solutions (WFaS) Initiative. It is a 1.5 year project that will use WFaS collaborations and partnerships to develop the first set of consistent, multi-model integrated scenarios across the food-water-energy-climate nexus. More
The project, "Causal analysis at macro- and meso-level: Development of land use indicators," will look at the extent of land area associated with different consumption patterns and lifestyles. Indicators and factors describing the intensity of land use and its interaction and intervention with ecosystems will then be developed. More
Urban-rural dynamics in China are changing due to rapid industrialization and agricultural transformation. The project will investigate the relationship between industrialization and land use in China through integrated analysis and modeling of land use efficiency and security. More
The project Threats to Fresh Water Resources and Human Water Security focuses on human water security More
