WP 3 - Assessment of demand-supply forecasting models

This work package investigates methods and approaches to analyze, evaluate, and design anthropogenic material systems with the focus on the temporal scale. Existing methods vary with respect to their field of application and problem solving capacity, data requirements, coverage of time, area, materials, and uncertainty, consideration of internal and external drivers, employability for forecasting as well as software support. The main objective of WP 3 is to assess existing approaches and methodologies to detect and analyze approaches to adequately track global resource flows including analysis of data and model uncertainty. Further, potentials to contribute to a harmonized and generally agreed common methodology and visualization requirements for routine application are evaluated.
