WEF Nexus Analytics Platform

nexus tool logoWater, energy, and food are interrelated systems which face numerous challenges including a growing global population, economic crises, poverty, hunger and malnutrition, climatic uncertainties and more.Meeting these challenges requires a paradigm shift and a better understanding of how these three resources form a nexus, with quantifiable interconnections that need to be incorporated into decision-making processes.

With this goal in mind, our group has developed a holistic platform (WEF Nexus Tool 2.0©) to support decision-makers in identifying sustainable resource management strategies that are informed by the water-energy-food nexus.
