The Reshaping the Domestic Nexus project brought new evidence and understandings of household practices to the attention of key policy partners, to inform intervention to reshape consumption of resources within the nexus of water-energy-food. From initial design of the proposed project to delivery of final reports, the project has been undertaken in collaboration with:
- Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra)
- Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)
- Food Standards Agency (FSA)
Overall, across these partners, this work has been received with enthusiasm, generating live pathways to further impact and broader collaborations across policy fields. As detailed in the project’s final report, this has been achieved through our synthesis and communication of existing evidence, which has itself been shaped by the collaborative approach. For example, the priority given to our novel concept of ‘change points’ in our final partner reports, and its centrality to post-project impact, funding and publication ambitions, results from the recognition of its potential by several of our partners.
