Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus

Date: March 21, 2014

Policy- and decision-making requires a nexus approach that reduces tradeoffs and builds synergies across sectors, helping to reduce costs and increase benefits for humans and nature when compared to independent approaches to the management of water, energy, food and the environment.

The sustainability of the Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus is a key research-for-action initiative, and this conference will bring together available information, identify knowledge and action gaps, share lessons on viable instruments and approaches, facilitate networks, and contribute to consensus on priorities for appropriate investment and action by different actors and stakeholders for moving toward action on the WEF Nexus.
