Linkages between energy, food and water consumption in the context of climate change mitigation strategies

The International Conference Links 2015: Linkages between energy, food, water consumption in the context of climate change mitigation strategies Will be held in Florianópolis and will give universities around the world the opportunity to present their work (curriculum innovation, research, activities and practical projects) related to energy, food and water consumption, sustainable development, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

The Conference will be a space to discuss methodological approaches and projects which aim to integrate the issue of sustainable and renewable energy in communities and rural areas, support projects and implement plans of action on renewable energy and to promote the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired during the execution of projects from successful initiatives and good practices related to Technological change of the Brazilian energy sector, and its impact on land use changes, food, water and greenhouse gas emissions.

Links 2015 Background+

The efficiency of resource use is a crucial determinant for the future quality of the environment both at the local and global scales. Business-as-usual pathways of economic, demographic and resource use development are known to greatly exceed tolerable limits of global environmental change (e.g. with global temperature increases exceeding 5°C).

These issues are of particular relevance in Brazil, which may suffer significant amounts of environmental change, biodiversity loss and possible desertification in certain areas. Analysing sustainable development in Brazil demands a study of complex interactions between energy, food and water systems, ideally conducted with coupled computational models that operate both at the global (i.e. climate change) and local (i.e. land use) scales.

The expected outcome of this project is to produce the foundation for a mid- to long-term collaboration that will contribute to the understanding of the integration of sustainable development policies (legal, political and policy-making) to sustainable human development objectives, with a focus on the sustainability challenges of Brazil regarding the use of energy, food and water resources.

The official languages of the conference are Portuguese and English.
