Online Training Series // Innovative Governance of Food-Water-Energy Nexus in Cities

The Understanding Innovative Governance for Food, Water, and Energy Nexus in Cities (IFWEN) project has been developing innovative governance tools to support cities to adopt nexus approaches that connect food, water, energy, waste and nature. As part of the outputs of this project, this training programme has been developed to share insights from the project and provide opportunities for city-to-city learning. The manner in which this training takes place is through co-learning, with guidance from specialists.
