SOS.aquaterra: Respecting safe operating spaces: opportunities to meet future food demand with sustainable use of water and land resources

Population growth and climate change will increase the pressure on meeting the increased food demand within the carrying capacity of nature in the future. SOS.aquaterra takes up this challenge by identifying socio-economically feasible ways to meet future food demand within key planetary boundaries for food production, through water-land-nutrient-food system-thinking. The project aims to develop novel, integrated modelling and data analysis methods by using global open spatio-temporal datasets together with outputs from global agrological and hydrological models.

This five-year project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant programme. The project is led by Assistant professor Matti Kummu.
