FORMULATING SUSTAINABLE URBAN FWE STRATEGY BY OPTIMIZING THE SYNERGIES BETWEEN FOOD, WATER AND ENERGY SYSTEMS

SUNEX OFFERS AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO SUPPORT THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS

in formulating an inclusive urban FWE–strategyThe applied nexus-approach relies on real data, stakeholder’s dialogue and consistent development scenarios to address and understand the complex interlinkage between the three systems and maximize their synergies. 

SECTORAL MODELLING FRAMEWORK TO ANALYSE THE FWE SYSTEMS OF CITY REGIONS

Four case study reflecting different consumption patterns and resource uses and will finally provide policy guidelines for different physical and climatic framework conditions and consumption patterns.

ASPECTS

 

Food

 

 

Water

 

 

Energy

 

Considering  the concept of regional supply, we consider three area types of different extent which “feed” the city 

01

The urban core delineated by the administrative boundaries providing local supply

02

The greater urban region, the peri-urban area adjacent to the urban core, providing regional supply

03

The external supply area (covering national and international zones) providing water, energy and food supply (such as citrus fruits etc…)
