Development of a spatiotemporal assessment of the Wheatbelt's water vulnerability: a building block for examining the food-water-energy nexus
Event

Seminar // Development of a spatiotemporal assessment of the Wheatbelt's water vulnerability: a building block for examining the food-water-energy nexus

This research focuses on the water-climate connection whilst building upon existing approaches to measuring vulnerability through the development of a comprehensive framework to assess water vulnerability in Western Australia's Wheatbelt under changing climatic conditions. A follow on discussion will highlight how this work can be used as building block in examining the food-water-energy nexus.

 

This seminar is free and open to the public & no RSVP required.
