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 is focusing on the optimal distribution of land use choices that will in turn optimise forestry, low-carbon energy options (hydropower & bioenergy), food security, and hydropower production. Key indicators for assessing “effective resource efficiency” relate to the potential impacts of land use change on water availability, including bioenergy production, food security, hydropower production, contributions to low-carbon energy (bioenergy, hydropower, etc.) and impacts on employment and other sectoral economic performance indicators. The main actors from the forestry, agricultural and hydropower sectors are mobilised, including the Swedish Forestry Agency (Skogforsk), Ministry of Agriculture, Swedish Energy Agency.
