Foresight // The Water-Energy-Food Nexus: Foresight for Research and Innovation in the Context of Climate Change
By Beatriz Mayor Rodríguez, Elena López Gunn, Oiana Hernaez Lizarazu and Ibon Zugasti Gorostidi. This study aims to identify the openings for the EU to create a resilient low carbon economy, in preparedness for climate change, by anticipating the early signals and potential for key research and innovation to guide policy and decision making.
The study has combined the analysis of the state of the art with the consultation and contrasting with more than 200 experts through different methods (interviews, Delphi study and validation workshop). Besides the research priorities of each axis of the nexus (detailed in chapters 5, 6 and 7), emerging priorities (detailed in chapter 8) have been suggested. However, these priorities will not reach their potential unless research and innovation policies are in place. As presented in chapter 9, the experts suggested transversal aspects that could drive positive impacts on the water-energy-food nexus and their potential to catalyse business opportunities.
