BC3-UPV/EHU Seminars: “Groundwater Management in a Food Security Context”

Prof. Jean-Christophe Pereau University of BordeauxThis article analyzes the sustainability of market-based instruments such as tradable permits for the management of a renewable aquifer used for irrigated agriculture. In our dynamic hydro-economic model, a water agency aims at satisfying a food security constraint within a tradable permit scheme in the presence of myopic heterogeneous agents. We identify analytically the viability kernel that defines the states of the resource yielding inter-temporal feasible paths able to satisfy the set of constraints over time and the associated set of viable quota policies. We then illustrate the theoretical results of the paper with numerical simulations based on the Western La Mancha aquifer.

BC3 Seminar: “Exploring national survey data to quantify household dependence on ecosystem services”

Although ecosystem services are inherently at the interface of society and nature, most of the indicators used to measure them are still predominantly either biophysical or social.

BC3 Seminar: “Linking bottom-up and top-down energy modeling in the framework of EIO analysis“

We use the model framework developed by Guevara and others to set up an EIO model where the energy system is in great part driven by the energy services (or useful energy).
