Welcome to Failand! The country where conventional food and energy supplies do not work and security is in shatters. Or would you rather travel to Winland, a country where resilient planning and policy-making processes have prevented such a catastrophe from occurring? Our research project ‘From Failand to Winland’ provides an insight to both of these possible futures with the help of scenario, decision analysis and co-creation methods. Our project studies how water, food and energy related pressures, shocks and policy responses affect Finland’s overall security. We will also look at how resilient our systems and policy-making processes actually are to food and energy security related risks and threats, and based on analysis develop key messages and recommendations for the key stakeholders in different sectors of our society.
