Water-food-energy nexus in East Asia: insights from changes in consumption pattern

Water-food-energy (WFE) nexus has brought great attention worldwide. In the project, we firstly establish a multi-regional computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to investigate the effects of residential consumption patterns change on WFE nexus in East Asia countries and some other countries under different shared socioeconomic pathways. The database, model and results, coupled with further approaches will contribute to capacity development. Specially, the project develops a cooperation with Administrative Centre for China’s Agenda 21 and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). The policy making capacity can be enhanced by submitting the formulated policy recommendation report to departments by MOST and organizing meetings and trainings for policy makers from different sectors in various countries, to make communications on current policy making process and future policy development direction. Furthermore, the scientific capacity will be enhanced by CGE model construction and convening scientists from different fields in different countries together for discussions and training workshops. Finally, the project will construct website and public accounts for civil society, with project achievements and scientific frontiers updated. The results of research part can also contribute to capacity development for the public of knowledge improvement by providing an intuitive illustration for them on how their consumption pattern could affect resource utilization.
