The parallel case studies constitute the core of the project,
and thus command together the largest share of resources.
They follow the same structure in terms of their objectives, the specific tasks, and the Deliverables,
each with a report on the problem analysis and the optimisation results.
The differences between the parallel case study work packages are only
in the specific setting of the water
resources system analysed, from its physiographical features, dominant land use
and thus water users, socio-economic development, and institutional framework,
resulting in different examples of the same generic problem.
The case studies are synchronised, running parallel, to make efficient use of resources.
The main objective is to configure the tools, and apply the methodology, to each concrete case study
as described below, involving simulation exercises and the two phase optimisation approach including
the second-phase participatory multi-criteria reference point approach.
- Data compilation: case study specific data;
- Implementation and calibration of the simulation/optimisation model for the case study;
- Optimisation exercises: generation of non-dominated alternatives
- Interactive Decision Making: local workshops including evaluation.
- The Baseline Scenarios: summary and comparison
