Water is essential to energy production processes in both the mining of raw materials and in power generation. Energy is required for the extraction, purification, distribution, utilisation and disposal of water. The risks posed by the water-energy nexus manifest differently across the Indian Ocean region and the best approach to reduce the nexus will be contingent upon each country’s geographical and social intricacies. Reducing the strength of the water-energy nexus will improve the resilience of both water and energy in a future of climate and economic variability.
