Challenges in food, water and energy systems are locally and globally connected. For local actors, including cities, it is diffi cult to anticipate whether solutions to one issue in the FWE nexus are sustainable across food, water and energy systems, both at the local and the global scale. To support future implementation of this approach, guidelines and a participatory assessment tool kit will be developed through co-creation in seven Urban Living Labs based on an integrated assessment of local-global interactions in the FWE nexus and transdisciplinary action-research.
