Respecting safe operating spaces: opportunities to meet future food demand with sustainable use of water and land resources

Project description

Sustainable management of natural resources

Rapid increases in food production to meet the growing needs of a growing population worldwide is resulting in water and land scarcity. The world’s population growth and climate change will represent further challenges for natural resources. Until now, scientists assess water and land scarcity separately. The EU-funded SOS.aquaterra project will assess water and land scarcity together, aiming to identify vital standards to address future food demands and prevent water and land scarcity. The project will develop innovative integrated modelling and data analysis methods to exploit together with the constantly growing global open spatio-temporal data sets the products from global agrological and hydrological models. SOS.aquaterra will also develop an innovative integrated model to combine the possibilities of conventional and innovative measures.
