New approaches and tools are needed to make it easier for broad coalitions of stakeholders to understand water-energy-food-environment systems better and collaborate on resource management decisions more effectively and efficiently. Particularly on regional systems, or water resources which cross borders, effective collaboration is increasingly essential. Water impacts on other economic sectors such as energy and food, and also on ecosystems. Managing water well requires understanding synergies and trade-offs with these resource systems as well.
Prof. Julien Harou will present the latest research from FutureDAMS on the design and assessment of water-energy-food-environment mega systems, introducing examples of real world systems using advanced analytics to support the decision making of coalitions of stakeholders.
FutureDAMS webinar series "New approaches and tools for water-energy-food-environment security"
The FutureDAMS webinars are an open academic seminar series for everyone interested in the design and assessment of water-energy-food-environment (WEFE) systems. Presentations will usually follow a standard academic 30-minute format + 15 minutes for questions and moderated discussion. The webinars will take place every two weeks on Zoom and recordings of the webinars will be made available afterwards. For more information on upcoming webinars click here.
