Opinion

Does a shift in global policy debates toward the “water-energy-food security nexus” – that is, looking at competition over natural resources to provide for these vital needs – translate into any real change in the way water is managed? Is the concept useful in this era of a changing climate?

The Nexus in the Arab Region

Focusing on the nexus between scarce resources is the only route to sustainable supplies of water, food and energy.

River Management

If rivers run dry or we pollute them, it’s not just wildlife that suffers; water companies, farmers and power utilities are affected too.

Yet we hear little in nexus debates about these vital freshwater ecosystems. - By Dave Tickner

Water-Food Nexus
