Abstract:

Water-Energy-Food security is very complex challenge. Basic concept of this nexus has been developed and widely used to analyse and enhance the security of water, energy, and food. However, there are still knowledge gaps including the lack of blueprint and analytical framework for overcoming institutional disconnect among sectors. The research on it mostly in the perspectives of global or national. It has not sufficiently addressed to the local context especially in developing country. The main purpose of this research is to develop, examine and integrate a system dynamics nexus framework for water, energy, and food security from the local perspective. The specific objectives are to (1) study the existing water, energy, and food security concepts, (2) develop qualitative and quantitative system dynamics model of water, energy, and food security, (3) evaluate water, energy and food sector from economic and spatial side, and (4) examine the implications of sustainable interventions on water, energy, and food.
