The Global Food Security (GFS) programme has produced a new report, highlighting the outcomes of a ‘nexus thinking’ workshop held in June 2014.
The report identifies interdisciplinary research priorities and ways to foster cross-sector collaboration to stimulate nexus thinking.
In a world characterised by a rapidly rising population, new ways of conceptualising links between food, water, energy and land are key to future resource security. Understanding the interactions between these four factors as a ‘nexus’ will help decision-makers to understand and optimise trade-offs at multiple scales.
For more information and to download the report see the Global Food Security website.
