UNIVERSITEIT TWENTE, DRIENERLOLAAN 5, 7522 NB ENSCHEDE, THE NETHERLANDS
The University of Twente is represented in the WE-ACT project by the Multidisciplinary Water Management group. UT-MWM seeks to understand the natural and socio-economic processes that affect water resources and develop solutions for water scarcity, flooding and pollution. Particularly, we study the dynamics of supply and demand of water resources in interaction with climate, land use, the energy transition and agricultural management as well as production, trade and consumption. Our method of choice is water footprinting assessment.
UT-MWM will estimate water demand and water footprints of the different users and activities within the project basin. We will also study innovative ways to represent the multiple, at times conflicting values of water. Both exercises aim to inform allocation scenarios and decisions.
