Description Mankind uses water mainly to produce food. This places a close link between all events, choices and decisions concerning food production - population growth, change in diets, geopolitical conditions, changes in agricultural production, organization of the food supply chain, etc. - and their impact on the environmental resource water. It follows the competition between the ever-increasing demands for water by humans and the sustainability of ecosystems. Such competition is pervasive, at global-scale. puts entire ecosystems at risk, and is intertwined with other topical issues (e.g., climate changed and carbon storage by ecosystems). The proposed theses aim to investigate these crucial issues from different points of view (environmental, managerial, agricultural, etc.), proposing scenarios and innovative quantitative analyses.
