A new water–energy–food (WEF) nexus Community of Practice and podcast spread the word about synergistic resource management.

A new podcast series, titled ‘Unveiling Synergies’, aims to bring the critical concepts behind the WEF nexus approach to a broader audience. The podcast – co-hosted by Anne Chisa and Rewa Assi, two ​​​​early-career women researchers from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and the International Water Resources Association ECR Chapter, respectively – will feature interviews with leading WEF nexus researchers to explain nexus concepts through moderated conversations for researchers, government actors, practitioners, and other interested stakeholders.

The podcast will cover core nexus issues such as WEF and climate change, planetary health, and gender. The first episode, released on April 29, 2024, features an introductory conversation between Sara Masia from IHE-Delft and Tafadzwa Mabhaudhi from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

The idea for the podcast came about through a new ‘Global WEF Nexus Community of Practice’, supported by partners including the CGIAR Initiative on NEXUS Gains, which brings together individuals and organizations to discuss and plan impactful interventions.
