The online WEF Nexus Masterclass and in-person Advanced School are capacity-building initiatives to support early career researchers, postgraduate students, managers, and practitioners in understanding nexus thinking as a transformative approach to sustainable natural resources management and socio-economic development.

The water–energy–food (WEF) Nexus in-person Advanced School for the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) region builds on understanding of the WEF nexus – gained through the Masterclass – to improve evidence-based decision making capacities. Topics include:

  • Achieving simultaneous WEF security
  • Sustainable natural resources management
  • Socio-economic development
  • Understanding WEF trade-offs and synergies
  • Innovating through the WEF nexus for job and wealth creation, and linking science to inform policy and decision making in participants’ countries. Emphasis is made on developing transdisciplinary professional competencies to prepare participants to address complex, grand challenges through transformative approaches.
