Rivers Basins // Water-Energy-Food Security Nexus in Large Asian River Basins

Ed. by Marko Keskinen, Shokhrukh Jalilov and Olli Varis. This book looks at the water-energy-food security nexus in the context of large Asian river basins, with a focus on transboundary rivers shared by several countries. The aim is to analyze what benefits the nexus approach could bring into these kinds of, often quite demanding, settings. The thematic areas to be covered can thus include: water resources management; energy planning and policies with an emphasis on hydropower and biofuel production; and food production systems, including fisheries, irrigation and cropland management. Due to its focus on transboundary contexts, the special issue also emphasizes the geopolitical, international cooperation and security aspects related to the nexus.
