★ [U05-10] Optimal governance for water-energy-food nexus in Asia-Pacific region
Keywords:water, energy, food, nexus, governance, Asia Pacific
As the interim results of the project, we have evaluated the potential ground heat storage, geothermal energy, micro-hydro power in Japan and Philippines as the capacities for the tradeoff and the potential conflicts between water and energy. Relationships between fishery production and fishery diversity, between diversity of the water discharged from land to the ocean and fishery production/diversity, water as well as connectivity between land and ocean as the resilience to the risks such as tsunami, and social demographic change such as decreasing labors and increasing demand of energy.
Stakeholder analysis and social network analysis have been made to analyze the common interests/disputes among water-energy-food nexus and stakeholder behavior changes by using local stakeholder meetings as co-design and national level discussion on web about water-energy food nexus such as geothermal energy development and hot spring preservation. Framing of the integrated index, integrated maps, integrated physical models including water, nutrients, and biomass/fishery production have been also making for helping optimal policy selections. Integration of the local-national scale of the stakeholders have been also making based on involvements of new water act in Japan and California sustainable groundwater act as well as participatory web as co-monitoring of local environments such as natural springs. Linkage to the global nexus platform has been also made to Bonn Nexus, North Caronia Nexus, World Water Week, and others.
