Event Application of Public Domain Models for Water, Food and Climate Studies

Simulation models for water-food-climate are used frequently to support policy making and operational water management. Currently a wide range of models is available in the public domain and has been applied in various parts of the world. With the advent of global datasets and remote sensing techniques these models can be applied easily even in data scarce areas. Moreover, these public domain models can be used free of charge, and are often similar or even more advanced compared to commercial ones.

During this training course an overview of state of the art modeling techniques and hands-on training for specific models will be provided. The course will be organized by FutureWater and venue is Wageningen, Netherlands. Training will be provided by FutureWater staff that has multiple years of professional modeling experiences world-wide.

This course is geared towards water professionals working in developed and developing countries. The course will cover the essentials of hydrology, crop growth and climate change modeling concepts to support decision making and hands-on exercises to become familiar with the models. The lectures and exercises do not require extensive modeling background. More experienced professionals will have the opportunity to work with their own data during the exercises.
