1. Identify gaps in our understanding and our ability to resolve W-E-F Nexus issues.

2. Explore

a) decision making at the operational level and

b) policy development at national and international levels in the Nexus with an emphasis on integrated management of energy and water, the links to bioenergy, the bio-economy and land management and the role of the public and private sectors.

3. Identify observation types and essential variables, datasets, software platforms and tools (e.g. for modelling and analysis at different spatiotemporal scales, change of scale, handling of Big Data), indicators for decision making,

4. Identify pilot projects, research activities, and program strategies whereby Earth observations can be effectively integrated into decision-making within emerging W-E-F Nexus collaborations.
