  25. 25. Bioeconomy Scenario Description  Annual productivity growth increases by average across crops of 0.23 percentage points and 0.20 percentage points for livestock  Water use efficiency - assumed to improve in each sector: • Domestic sector: average global efficiency improvement = 45% in 2050 compared to BAU • Industrial sector: average global efficiency increase = 43% by 2050 compared to BAU • Smaller efficiency gains for irrigation sector – Average global efficiency gains = 15% in 2050 compared to BAU
  26. 26. Bioeconomy Scenario Description  Efficiency gains for industrial and residential water use taken from WaterGAP model (Ozkaynak et al. 2012); irrigation sector by IFPRI  Underlying assumptions of water use efficiency gains • Efficiency measures in industry and residential water use and climate policies lead to recycling and reduced demand for thermal cooling in power generation as fossil-fuel-powered plants are more rapidly replaced by renewable energy sources • For agriculture, basin water use efficiency gains are based on more efficient transpiration and reduced water losses – drought resistant varieties and other advances in research and biotechnology – reduced non-beneficial ET – reduced losses to water sinks (e.g. due to water-conserving irrigation and crop management technologies and reduced evaporative losses during conveyance)
  27. 27. Bioeconomy Scenario Description  Impact of faster technological change - commercial scale second generation biofuels start 5 years earlier than Business As Usual (BAU) (2025 rather than 2030); reducing demand for first generation feedstocks  GDP growth increased relative to BAU to reflect increased productivity in agricultural and water sectors  CGE model GTEM (Ahammad and Mi 2005) used iteratively with IMPACT to generate multiplier effects from agricultural and water sector productivity growth to GDP growth  Globally, GDP growth increases from 3.2% per year under BAU to 3.6% per year under Bioeconomy Scenario
