Fostering Diverse Water-Energy-Food Nexus Networks

Share this to :

Water, energy, and food are intimately linked and interdependent. Together, these resources have a major impact on the environment and human well-being. For sustainable and equitable development, it is essential to balance people’s need for food security with our limited supply of freshwater resources while also protecting ecosystems.

Managing this ‘WEF nexus’’ is a requires the involvement of many stakeholders from across these traditionally siloed sectors. Reaching this balance requires considerable coordination of actors working across sectors and scales to manage these resources in an integrated way to achieve multiple goals. This is the role of WEF nexus approaches: address complex trade-offs and synergies to multiply gains across WEF sectors.
