Mind the Water Cycle Gap: Innovating Water Management Optimisation PracticeOptimisation is what you do if you run out of on innovative ideas. Current practice in integrated water management predominantly use multi-objective optimisation approaches with aggregated objectives. This biases results towards the status quo and against innovative solutions, can foster stakeholder resistance when they do not recognize their values and objectives in the optimization formulation, while also raising ethical concerns related to the inclusion of undesirable and/or hidden trade-offs1. In contrast, many-objectives optimisation approaches can consider many non-aggregated objectives, which has the potential to enrich the solution space with alternative courses of action that better reflect the diverging perspectives of stakeholders, and align better with ethical concerns.
