A Decision-Analytic Framework to explore the water-energy-food
NExus in complex and trans-boundary water resources systems of fast growing
developing countries

The overall objective of DAFNE is to establish a decision-analytic framework (DAF) for participatory
and integrated planning of Water ressources in trans-boundary river basins in Africa.
The DAF will be developed for the two river systems of the Sambesi and Omo river,
taking into account existing and planned infrastructure and engaging local stakeholders and academic expertise.
VISTA will provide data derived from satellite images to characterise the space-time variability of key parameters
such as Leaf Area Index, fractional vegetation cover, water body characteristics etc..
With these case studies two rapidly growing African regions will be considered.
