Knowledge for better food systems

'Mitigating risks and vulnerabilities in the energy-food-water nexus in developing countries' – Report Launch, 29th April 2016, Oxford, UK

A recent report by Stellenbosch’s Sustainability Institute, Mitigating Risks and Vulnerabilities in the Energy-Food-Water Nexus in Developing Countries, seeks to address some of the critical issues around the nexus.  Lead author Dr Jeremy Wakeford will present findings from the research which aimed to: (1) to understand the dynamic interactions occurring among energy, food and water systems with a view to identifying the key vulnerabilities and risks facing developing countries in terms of nexus security; and (2) to inform planning and policy in developing countries to mitigate these risks and to promote economic efficiency, social equity and environmental sustainability in food, energy and water provision to their citizens via a transition to more sustainable and resilient systems.

Dr Wakeford’s keynote will be followed by a panel discussion featuring leading experts across each nexus theme: energy, water, and food.
