Complex systems approach for international agricultural trade network

Marie-Cécile Dupas

Université Paris Diderot

Marie-Cecile Dupas is a PhD Student at the Interdisciplinary Energy Research Institute - LIED - in Paris, France, which focusses on climate change, energy transitions and ecologic crises. The aim of her actual work is the modelling of trade networks for agricultural products and the assessment of the resilience of food security. One challenge is to understand the drivers of long-term evolutions and to build predictive quantitative models for the governance of sustainable growth transitions. Prior to her graduate studies, she investigated the depletion of resources by analyzing global data for several key metals used in electronic devices and constructed a prospective long-term model predicting their demand and supply. 


Mechanization and the use of fossil fuels and fertilizers in agriculture since the early 20th century are the catalyst of the current global food production growth and worldwide trading. For food supply, the massive... [ view full abstract ]
