Over the 4-year project, eight case studies will dive into the WEFE issues focusing on the role of Water, Energy, Food and Ecosystem governance. Diverse in terms of their climate, geography, economic issues, and politics, six will be based on river basins in Europe and Africa and two tackling the global and EU issues. GoNexus researchers will monitor the river basins in dialogue with local stakeholders and apply this knowledge to future scenarios, tools and solutions.
