Report

Understanding the Energy-Water Nexus

A “nexus approach”, which in our context refers to a multidisciplinary type of analysis of the relationship between energy, water and food, can help to reduce trade-offs and to build synergies across these different sectors. In an increasingly complex and interrelated world this approach can lead to better and more efficient resource use as well as cross-sectoral policy coherence.

NEXUS Knowledge

This section introduces and presents key documents, presentations, links and other information on the nexus. We foresee that it will grow over time and aim to build a comprehensive online archive of Nexus-related knowledge products for decision-makers in politics and the corporate world, researchers, experts and other interested users.

Systematic & full text search will be added soon.

We do welcome your suggestions for inclusion of Nexus-related information and thank you in advance!
