Water–energy–food–ecosystems dynamics in a climate crisis

NEXUS Gains Talk 22: May 2024

The all-encompassing nature of climate crisis means that it is deeply connected to the WEFE nexus. This webinar attempted to answer how decision makers can use these connections to their advantage to support climate mitigation and adaptation goals – as well as sustainable development initiatives – while addressing the urgent challenges brought about by a changing climate.

With: Sidra Khalid and Dr Mohsin Hafeez, IWMI Pakistan; Professor Walter Immerzeel, Utrecht University; Dipak Gyawali, Nepal Academy of Science and Technology; Dr Bimala Rai Paudyal, Agriculture and Forestry University.

The water–energy–food–ecosystems nexus and One Health: Opportunities for joint action?

NEXUS Gains Talk 21: April 2024

This webinar presents two case studies where One Health and the WEFE nexus overlap: the first links built surface water storage systems with human health, while the second assesses the WEFE nexus of the rice–fisheries system.

With: Dr Jonathan Lautze and Dr Matthew McCartney, IWMI and NEXUS Gains; Vartika Singh, IFPRI-Delhi; Timmo Gaasbeek, Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Alvin Lopez, Asian Development Bank.
