Overview of Flagship Project 5

Flagship Project 5: Supply Chains: Modelling Water Use for Sustainable Livelihoods

This project aims to inform the sustainable use of water and build resilience in supply chains for food producers and consumers alike. The impact of specific crop-product varieties on the selected ecosystems will be determined via:

- Developing current and future state supply chain models linked to alternative: small/large farm scales; open/closed market organisation models; storage and distribution models; end-use and user behaviours.


- Evaluating current and future state models through multiple time horizons.


- Identifying vulnerabilities within current supply networks and developing more resilient and sustainable future state supply network configurations, examining water quality, re-use and contamination streams.
