Society in the era of climate change: water and energy problems and cyclical economy
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.
Why existing models are not enough
Most modern models are designed to study only peripheral processes, while the risks associated with climate change are systemic. They depend on behavioural changes and influence economic choices.
Agent-based modeling as a new research tool
Agent modeling is a computer model of a society consisting of agents (firms, people, various commercial or government organizations, etc.) who make decisions and interact with each other according to established rules. In this report, Tatyana Filatova will give examples of the use of agent modeling in relation to the problem of water and energy.
