About Water-Energy Nexus under Climate Change - United Arab Emirates
The National Water-Energy Nexus study is one of twelve studies within AGEDI's "Local, National, and Regional Climate Change (LNRCC) Programme. The study explored the costs and benefits of a transition by the UAE toward climate-resilient development pathways. A research team led by David Yates and Francisco Flores from the National Center for Atmospheric Research and the Stockholm Environment Institute, respectively, carried out the study.
The main objective of the Inspector is to offer access to the inputs and outputs of the study. Two options are offered: a simple version which consists of a complete set of modeling outputs and a full feature version which consists of the WEAP-developed water system model for the UAE and the LEAP-developed energy system model for the UAE.
For a discussion of the underlying methodology, models, data sources, and key assumptions, please see the accompanying technical reports which are accessible from the main Water-Energy Nexus under Climate Change (United Arab Emirates) page.
