Finding CLEWs A New Methodology for Modelling the Integrated Effects of Climate, Land Use, Energy and Water Interactions
This research project will present, develop and demonstrate a tool for the concurrent evaluation of crop production, national energy and water management, as well as the simultaneous assessment of selected GHG mitigation, vulnerability and adaptation scenarios, therefore providing a valuable tool for policy makers addressing nexus challenges.

Smarter use of land, water and energy is needed for the world to continue to make gains against hunger, the International Food Policy Research Institute said today as it released its annual Global Hunger Index. The gauge shows 20 countries with levels of hunger that are “extremely alarming” or “alarming,” down from 26 last year and 43 in 1990 when the institute began compiling the index. Burundi, Eritrea and Haiti scored the worst, while the Democratic Republic of Congo, a perennial poor performer, didn’t have enough data to be ranked. The bulk of low-scoring countries are in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

Our world is facing an urgent food management crisis that is leading to many continuing to go hungry whilst vast amounts of food are being wasted daily. This is why the link between water and food is of immense concern and this year, the World Water Week in Stockholm, organised by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) was dedicated to this issue. Within the complex nexus of water, food and energy, water plays a critical role and a fair governance mechanism for efficient management of water can lead to long-term positive implications for food security. However, water governance and management are currently suffering from numerous problems that prevent this positive long-term perspective from becoming a reality.
