The water-energy-food nexus: global, basin and local case studies of resource use efficiency under growing natural resource scarcity

The goal of "The Water-Energy-Food Nexus: Global, Basin and Local Case Studies of Resource Use Efficiency under Growing Natural Resource Scarcity" project is to more sustainably manage natural resources, increase food security and reduce poverty for poor rural men and women in the face of rapid agricultural, water and energy development in the Eastern Nile basin. Specifically, the project analyzes key nexus challenges in Ethiopia and the Eastern Nile region, work with national governments in Ethiopia and to a lesser extent Egypt and Sudan, to assess nexus challenges in the countries and develop policy options for reducing the costs of tradeoffs and promoting positive synergies across the water, energy and food security nexus at local and regional levels in Ethiopia, the Eastern Nile Basin; with insights from global assessments.
