Finding CLEWs – A New Methodology for Modelling the Integrated Effects of Climate, Land Use, Energy and Water Interactions

This research project will present, develop and demonstrate a tool for the concurrent evaluation of crop production, national energy and water management, as well as the simultaneous assessment of selected GHG mitigation, vulnerability and adaptation scenarios, therefore providing a valuable tool for policy makers addressing nexus challenges.

Announcer:

Mark Howells, Head of Division of Energy Systems Analysis, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)

Lead Organisation:

Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) together with FAO, IAEA, IIASA, SEI, UNDESA and UNIDO

In its RIO+20 Call-to-action, CGIAR called for “adopting cross-sectoral approaches which facilitate broader partnerships, coordinated regulatory frameworks and appropriate economic incentives. We need the vision and courage to transcend conventional sectoral approaches and apply integrated thinking to the management of agriculture, aquaculture, livestock, forests and water.” AlertNET wanted to find out more, and talked to Stephen Hall (Director General, WorldFish Center), Papa Seck (Director General, Africa Rice Center), Tony Simons (Director General, World Agroforestry Centre), Alain Vidal (Director, Challenge Program on Water and Food – CPWF), Amy Duchelle (Research Fellow, Center for International Forestry Research - CIFOR) and from the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture - IITA), we have Peter Neuenschwander (Scientist Emeritus) and Piet van Asten (Systems Agronomist).

More technological innovation is needed to fight growing resource scarcity, but it will only be successful in achieving sustainable development if it considers the use of water, energy and land as interdependent issues, according to a European report. Investment in innovation is required for sustainable agriculture, for achieving more efficient use of water and energy, and for rolling out renewable energy technologies, says the ‘European Report on Development 2011–2012’, funded by the European Commission and seven European states.
