Offer Description

Human activities are important sources of change in hydrological systems. In turn, hydrologic conditions also have significant impacts on society at multiple scales for example via flooding, drought, water quality, and erosion. In this context of dynamic interdependence – which gave birth to a branch of science called “socio-hydrology” – is the challenge of the Water-Energy-Food Nexus management. In fact, the increasing demand for resources creates trade-offs that are exacerbated by the impacts of climate change and, for this reason,needs to be betted coordinated and utilised promoting positive synergistic impacts. The aim of this research is to develop an approach that, considering the co-evolution paths of societies and hydrological systems, supports decision-makers in designing sustainable and actionable forward-looking solutions that cope with challenges across sectors
