Assessing the Impacts of Climate Change on Water Resources Carrying Capacity Using Venism




climate change, vensim, water carrying capacity, research review


Purpose: Climate modification and population increase are threatening water supplies. The world's population have tripled ever since the turn of the century, nonrenewable energy demand has climbed by a ratio of 30, while occupational production had also risen by a ratio of 50.


Theoretical Framework: Problem sizing and structure, model conceptualization, model implementation and testing, and scenarios analysis are the four phases of a conventional SD modeling framework.


Methods: This indicates that as a result of occupational, agricultural, and urban usage, there is a rising demand for water and a diminishing supply of resources of sufficient quality. Due to the effects of climate change, unkind ocean smooth rose by 0.19 m among 1901 and 2010. Anthropogenic climate change is known to have impacted the incidence and magnitude of flooding. Globally, the recent identification of growing vogues in precipitation and large flows in specific basins suggests a larger impact.


Results: This research article takes stock of the evaluation of the influences of climate change on water transport capacity, in particular using the Vensim model. In this research review, for the analysis or estimate of the impacts of climate change on the water transport capacity, Vensim was investigated using a system dynamics technique to simulate the basin slopes of the supply systems to study climatic effects.


Conclusions: It was concluded that the combination of different adaptation strategies, such as desalination, the construction of dams and the promotion of water conservation, has the greatest effects in reducing the impacts of climate change.
