Abstract

In long term view, policy/decision makers need to justifiable anticipation for the major future drivers that may effect on their domain key variables. In this paper, we develop a knowledge-based structural analysis approach that based on integrating of RT-Delphi, structural analysis, knowledge-based and explanation modeling capabilities. We applied the developed approach in two crucial domains in Egypt, which are food security and water security (milk production). In addition, it was 15 and 25 experts participate in food security and water security cases. They share knowledge for identifying, analyzing and foreseeing potentials of Egypt's water and food security as ground to thinking of pilot solutions aimed at evading problems and futures drivers as well as developing a repository of knowledge whereby Egypt's policy/decision makers are attained.
