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.

SIM4NEXUS will explore the potential benefits of introducing Nexus-compliant practices in achieving the national energy ambitions, taking into account resource efficiency targets and the transition towards a circular economy. Nexus-compliant practices in the energy sector need to integrate with agricultural land management, sustainable water management and climate mitigation and adaptation. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the national water boards and some provinces (e.g. South-Holland and Groningen) are involved.
