Presentation (© Routledge) :

Global trends of population growth, rising living standards and the rapidly increasing urbanized world are increasing the demand on water, food and energy. Added to this is the growing threat of climate change which will have huge impacts on water and food availability. It is increasingly clear that there is no place in an interlinked world for isolated solutions aimed at just one sector. In recent years the « nexus » has emerged as a powerful concept to capture these inter-linkages of resources and is now a key feature of policy-making.
