Podcast // Climate Resilience: Role of Water-Energy-Food Nexus
In episode 14 of the India Energy Hour, the hosts are joined by Dr Aditi Mukherji, principal researcher, International Water Management Institute. They discuss the water-energy-food nexus, how clean energy and water conservation go hand in hand and the role water will play in climate adaptation.
In the history of the global climate change conferences, it was in the recent COP26 that for the first time there was a separate Water pavilion. Water economy management has faced negligence on the climate discussion table till yet but it is time that water is given the centerstage. Water forms the key bridge in the energy-food supply chain. Water resource management will be crucial to the energy transition planning of India – where till two years back, there was no separate department to focus on water scarcity.
