Global CLEWs model (completed projects)

In its current efforts, KTH dESA has developed a global CLEWs model that includes the most relevant materials. The model allows for the visualisation of the effects of policy decisions not only on one sector but on the CLEWs nexus as a whole. The results provide information to modellers and policy makers, allowing them to consider trade-offs and synergies for targeting sustainable development. This could mark a first step towards global sustainable development goals, taking into account “food, water and energy security, maintenance of biodiversity and ecosystem services, sustainable urbanisation, social inclusion and livelihoods, protection of seas and oceans, and sustainable consumption and production”, as deemed urgently necessary in the State of the Planet Declaration in 2012 (Brito & Stafford Smith).

The OSeMOSYS tool was chosen as the development tool for its advantages in simplicity, accessibility, affordability and flexibility, making the model and its results transparent and repeatable. Such properties are key to the usefulness of the model be that within the scientific community or for application in policy making.

KTH-dESA plans to further develop the existing Global CLEWs model. A five-regional model will be constructed and a water module will be added. Also, social indicators will be linked to the demands for useful services, in order to enable the model to assess different policy pathways for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals.
