The interdisciplinary research project will run for three years. It will use agent-based models to simulate possible solutions to control and/or reduce dust-storms in the region considering the impacts of proposed solutions from social, political, economic, and environmental perspectives. To consider environmental, socio-political, and economic aspects of dust-storm generation and control policy, the project involves expertise from engineering, science, and social sciences faculties of Lund University.
