Climate change and socio-economic systems
Climate change affects the functioning of global and national socio-economic systems. The UN proposes measures to achieve sustainable development: adaptation to the effects of climate change and transition to an economy based on renewable energy sources (cyclical economy). These measures require effective and comprehensive solutions.

In this report, Tatyana Filatova will give examples of the use of agent modeling in relation to the problem of water and energy.
