DAFNE Project

  1. 1. www.dafne-project.eu @dafne_project DECISION ANALYTIC FRAMEWORK TO EXPLORE THE WATER-ENERGY-FOOD NEXUS IN COMPLEX TRANSBOUNDARY WATER RESOURCES OF FAST DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. Funded under the H2020 Framework Programme of the EU, GA No. 690268 SIM4NEXUS Prof Phoebe Koundouri Athens University of Economics and Business London School of Economics March 16th 2018
  2. 2. 2 What is DAFNE? The DAFNE project explores sustainable and integrated options for the management of water, energy and food. Focus on transboundary context in fast growing countries.
  3. 3. 3 Objectives of DAFNE? To establish a decision-analytic framework (DAF) for Participatory and Integrated Planning (PIP) that will: • Develop a better understanding of the WEF (Water- Energy-Food) nexus • Generate and explore alternative planning and management solutions focused on the WEF nexus • Contribute to solutions that foster profitable but equitable use of resources without infringing on environmental limits (thus minimizing and mitigating societal conflicts)
  4. 4. 4 Stakeholder involvement Active engagement of diverse range of stakeholders in the process from the outset of the project Tools to facilitate social understanding of the impact and support comparative analysis of the alternative through negotiations (Negotiation Simulation Lab)
  5. 5. CASE STUDY 1: ZAMBEZI RIVER BASIN • 4th Largest River Basin in Africa • 8 Southern African Countries • Key Issues: • Energy Production/Irrigation Trade-off • Trans-boundary governance under ZAMCOM • Reliance on the Zambezi for Tourism
  6. 6. CASE STUDY 2: OMO-TURKANA RIVER BASIN • Transboundary: Ethiopia and Kenya • Ethiopia has one of the largest hydro-power potential in Africa but only about 5% is exploited • Key Issues: • Trade-offs between hydropower, irrigation and the environment • Water availability in the Lower Omo Valley and Lake Turkana
  7. 7. 7 Building the Decision-Analytic Framework (DAF) Extensive data collection (quantitative and qualitative) on WEF related issues in the area Developing Scenarios (baseline and future) to characterize the hydrologic, ecological, infrastructural (energy and water), social, economic systems as well as the governance and policy contexts Developing and integrating models which capture each of the above elements Identifying and assessing robust water management alternatives, or temporal sequences thereof (pathways) in collaboration with stakeholders

Achieving Natural Resources, Economic, Social Sustainability by developing scientific and methodologically sound approaches to recognizing, demonstrating and capturing the Total Economic Value of natural resources and other public goods important for social welfare, integrating them in sustainable management tools and policy making, while recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of the challenge.
