As populations and economies continue to grow, the demand for water, energy and food is set to increase as well. The effects of global climate change will only put further strain on natural resources, and life as we know it will be left hanging in the balance. Over the next 4 years, GoNEXUS will work to re-balance water, food and energy ecosystems to maximise our planet’s environmental security. Through in-depth case studies and scenarios, GoNEXUS will create a future-proof toolbox and a framework to manage the WEFE nexus.
GoNEXUS will determine the impacts of changing temperatures and rain on water resource availability and management from global to local scales.
GoNEXUS will estimate the impact of shifts in energy demand and production and define solutions to guarantee sustainable energy production.
GoNEXUS will assess agricultural water demands and crop-yield changes caused by climate change, shifting global and local markets.
GoNEXUS will investigate human pressures on the environment, climate change and policies have a profound effect on ecosystems to provide context-specific results and insights.
