Case studies


12 case studies will be developed during the project at regional, national, continental and global scale. The case studies will serve as test-beds for the models, the integration methodologies and the Serious Game. In all the case studies, the aim is to study the Nexus trade-offs and the impact of different policies for the future. In all regional and national case studies, we are planning to engage local stakeholders and decision makers (actors) for the development and testing of the strategies, the policies, and the Serious Game. Stakeholders will be involved from the start of the project.

The country is a member of the Council of Europe, a member of the EU Eastern Partnership. It has signed agreements with the EU for implementing EU Directives (e.g. the Water Framework Directive), but has not yet implemented them. We selected it as a juxtaposition to the other case studies at national level. This case study is also unique in the Nexus context, because its economy is based mainly on fossil fuels (oil and gas), causing significant pollution issues, while a considerable part of the country (Karabakh region) suffers acute problems of droughts and floods, including the relocation of population due to long term post-conflict consequences.
