Water-Energy-Food Nexus: Open consultation

MedSpring Open Consultation: Have your Say!

“MEDSPRING” (Mediterranean Science, Policy, Research and Innovation Gateway) is an EU funded project aiming at strengthening the Euro-Mediterranean Cooperation on Research and Innovation in key societal challenges: Resource Efficiency (particularly Water), High Quality Affordable Food and Energy.

An important component of MEDSPRING is EMEG (Euro-Mediterranean Expert Group), a “think tank” of experts.

This year, EMEG worked on the Water-Energy-Food (W-E-F) Nexus[1], developing a logical frame to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the complex interactions and trade-offs among water, energy and food as well as identifying a set of recommendations – both technical and political - for the Euro-Mediterranean research agenda.

The outcomes of this work were drafted in a Nexus Position Paper: “A frame for a comprehensive understanding of Water-Energy-Food Nexus” (the synthesis is available here).

Within this activity, we would like to know your opinion and views on the W-E-F Nexus in the Mediterranean Region and on the statements reported in the Paper.

EMEG will carefully take into account your ideas as it was done in the past.

This open consultation will last until 2nd April 2016.

Have your say and take part in this on-line consultation! It will take just 10/15 minutes.

Water-Food-Energy Nexus Open Consultation




[1] The Water-Energy-Food Nexus has emerged as a useful concept to describe and address the complex and interrelated nature of our global resource systems, on which we depend to achieve different social, economic and environmental goals. Nexus is the approach needed to pursue sustainable development via an integrated use of resources to satisfy basic needs on a global scale.
