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 study will quantify the potential of biomass for energy production, and consider interlinkages with the Nexus components water, food and climate in the context of climate change. Policy priorities relate to low-carbon energy and climate change mitigation Latvia has a high potential for renewable energy, but remains largely dependent on imported fossil fuels and electricity. Strategic objective is to promote use of renewable energy sources (e.g., solid biomass, biogas) for energy production. The interdisciplinary approach will evaluate abatement costs of different energy policies, and their impacts on water, air, biodiversity, land use and future climate change. The Ministries of Economy, Environmental Protection and Regional development, and Agriculture are involved, as well as regional energy agencies.
