Energizing food and water systems
The CGIAR Initiative on NEXUS Gains is co-developing business and finance models for accelerated inclusive access to clean energy and water systems, and supporting governments and other actors to take decisions to reduce the environmental footprint of food systems, providing a robust evidence base to support the development of integrated food, water, energy, and environmental policies and strategies. Researchers are also examining the impacts of alternative rural energy systems on water, ecosystems, poverty alleviation, women’s empowerment, job creation, and strengthening entrepreneurship.
