Food & Water Europe is currently recruiting for a Campaigns intern for its Brussels office. The person must be committed to Food & Water Europe’s values, vision and mission and interested in fighting for safe food, clean water and a sustainable energy system. The person will work with a small, dedicated team to help in the development of campaigns on fracking, energy and water.
The Sustainable Urban Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy Nexus brings together research and expertise across the globe to find innovative new solutions to the Food-Water-Energy Nexus challenge. The call is a joint call by Belmont Forum and JPI Urban Europe and is open for applications until March 15, 2017. On February 16, a webinar informs about the call with webinar participants having the opportunity to pitch their projects.
UNU-FLORES and Technische Universität Dresden are now accepting applications from graduates in engineering, social sciences, and natural sciences for their joint PhD Programme in Integrated Management of Water, Soil and Waste. The tuition-free programme aims at creating a new generation of environmental scientists, engineers, and managers, to conduct, promote, and provide guidance on the sustainable management of water, soil, and waste.
The links between energy usage and water are not clearly understood or recognised and thus water consumption is not considered as being intertwined with energy/electricity usage. Additionally, the water footprint of energy/electricity production is not usually considered, even though water is a scarce resource in many places. This project will firstly identify the water related electricity use at different spatial scales to define the “electricity footprint” of water use. On the other side, whole life-cycle connections between water and energy will be defined, and the “water footprint” of electricity production modelled.

Part of a series organised by the Nexus Network, this workshop will focus on ‘transforming innovation’ to address ‘nexus challenges’. Since these challenges are by nature so diverse yet interlinked, the imperative is to make connections of many intractable kinds. Crucial tasks include: overcoming disciplinary boundaries; bridging sectoral silos; spanning local and global sustainability; reconciling needs for feasibility with those for transformation; integrating the social and material aspects of key problems and solutions; and recognising how prospective actions can shape knowledges (not just the other way around). Transforming innovation involves making all these links.
In cooperation with the Gustav-Stresemann-Institute, the AGEP hosts a Winter School from 15-17 February 2017 under the title: „The Nexus of Water, Energy, Soil and Food”. The Winter School will bring together students from several of our academically diverse AGEP study programmes in order to allow for a multiperspective approach on the issues at stake.

By Myrna M. Velasco. The Department of Energy (DOE) is targeting to assess and study deeper the full impact of food-water-energy nexus; or what global experts would refer to as the “linkage of a thirsty triangle.” Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said this was among the topics highlighted during the recently concluded discussions at the Asian Cooperation Dialogue (ACD) that he attended in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates last month.
By Diane Cardwell. The wind industry crossed an important threshold in the United States last year, exceeding the generating capacity of hydroelectric power for the first time, according to the main industry trade group, the American Wind Energy Association.
Expressing concern over the growing global shortage of water, food and energy, Prof. Akhtar Kalam, Head of Engineering, Leader- Smart Energy Research Group, Victoria University, Australia on Monday warned that this could possibly lead to the third World War.
