The International Network of Basin Organizations (INBO), the Global Alliances for Water and Climate (GAfWaC), the International Network of Water Training Centers (INWTC) and their many partners, including UNESCO, UNECE, OECD, IOWater, REBOB, LANBO, ANBO, BAFWAC, EMWIS, in particular, were given the coordination of about ten thematic sessions, which have been mobilizing for more than a year a large international community for their preparation, and also a strong participation in the related sessions and also in the two Forum "Regional" and "Citizens" processes. This is a summary of the outcomes.
SF I-Corps Milwaukee site Director and UW-Milwaukee Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Ilya Avdeev, was recently awarded USD 600,000 from the National Science Foundation for his Milwaukee Water-Energy Nexus Education Initiative.
By Simone Ballard. During the forum, there were several key takeaway messages for future directions in strategy and mobilisation. Cooperation, co-creation, and cross-sectoral engagement are critical components of successfully taking progressive action plans forward. The water-energy-food (WEF) nexus will be taking a priority spot in shaping the mitigation and adaption strategies of the future.
By Kidanemarian Jembere and Isabel Pasternack. Africa’s sustainable development largely depends on goods and services derived from its environment and natural resources. As Africa pursues sustainable growth pathways and structural transformation, the management of natural capital and most importantly water, land and energy resources, is critical.
For almost 40 years the relationship between corporate environmental performance and corporate financial performance has been analysed in hundreds of empirical studies without yielding conclusive results. This Nexus Seminar will provide an overview on existing measurement approaches as well as an examination of available theories and factors regarding the causal relation, direction, and potential moderators and mediators of the relationship.
The arrival of new technologies, businesses and sources of finance are blurring the edges of the water sector and empowering the global water industry to connect, innovate, and rethink the way it does business.

Replacing 30 percent of the beef in those burgers with mushrooms would, according to a study by the World Research Institute, improve their taste while lowering emissions, saving water and reducing land demand.
By Homoud Al-Mutrafi, Waleed Al-Zubari, Alaa El-Sadek and Ibrahim Abdel Gelil. This paper performs an assessment of the water-energy nexus in the municipal sector of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, where the electric energy footprint in the water value chain (groundwater, desalination and wastewater treatment) and the water footprint in electric energy generation (thermal power plants) are quantified using data for the year 2013.
This brief presents a Water-Energy-Food (WEF) nexus case study of the Cumbaza River watershed in San Martin, Peru. The dynamic socio-ecological pressures and complex water-energy-food system interdependencies that exist in increasingly urbanized Amazon landscapes are discussed.
By Keith Schneider. Unleashing billions of barrels of oil locked in beds of shale 10,000 feet deep is only possible if the oil industry — and state and federal regulators — safely manage production challenges involving the region’s other primary resource: water.
The relationship between water and energy is close and fraught with misunderstandings. The European Union has only dipped its toe into the subject, starting with a recent proposal to update the bloc’s drinking water directive. EURACTIV takes a look at the key issues.
The proposal titled "Formulating Sustainable Urban Food, Water and Energy (FEW) strategy by optimising the synergetic effects among food, water and energy sectors" that was submitted by a Qatari team to Belmont Forum for this year has been approved.
