Water Simulator Tool
Entry ID: WATERSIM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Water Simulator Tool is an integrated hydrologic and economic model designed to better understand the key linkages between water, food security, and environment. The tools helps develop scenarios for exploring key questions for food water, food, and environmental security, at the global, national and basin scales. Broadly speaking the model consists of two integrated modules: the ‘food demand ... View entire text
