The Kick Off Meeting was organized with the aim to give the projects valuable information and to encourage collaboration across projects from the start. It was held to share expectations for the coming three years, comparing different approaches to food-water-energy nexus in urban transitioning, and identifying topics for further collaboration. Hassan Virji, Chair of the SUGI Expert Committee on Innovation and Impact Delivery, explained how the monitoring activities will support projects to succeed.
