Walking the nexus talk: Assessing the water–energy–food nexus in the context of the sustainable energy for all initiative

URL: http://www.fao.org/3/a-i3959e.pdf

Decision-makers need improved tools in order to be better informed about trade-offs and synergies between different development and management choices, and to help them identify options on how to sustainably manage resources. This report proposes a way to carry out a water–energy–food nexus assessment approach in order to: a) understand the interactions between water, energy and food systems in a given context, and b) evaluate the performance of a technical or policy intervention in this given context. The nexus assessment will inform nexus-related responses in terms of strategies, policy measures, planning and institutional set-up or interventions and therefore feed in adaptation planning.
