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.
