As all Knowledge-Action Networks, the Water-Energy-Food-Nexus Knowledge-Action Network started with a scoping process driven by a Development Team. This team is set up for the time of the scoping process (2016-2017) with a mandate to develop a Research and Engagement Plan for further shaping and funding the activities in this field under the Future Earth umbrella.
Since October 2015, the Development Team has been progressively populated. In March 2017, it was composed of members of the following groups:
- 3 representatives of the early career community;Future Earth Secretariat.
In May 2016, the Development Team decided to form a smaller Working Group, whose mandate was to work on a preliminary science plan and governance structure for the Water-Energy-Food Nexus Knowledge-Action Network and to prepare the Development Team in-person meeting (held in June 2017 in Paris).
The Working Group and Development Team are both chaired by Peter Verburg (selected by the Working Group and approved by the Development Team) for the duration of the scoping phase.
