Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus
Session 1 – 24 February 2016
Session 2 – 25 February 2016
The Water-Energy-Food Nexus has increasingly been discussed by academics and policymakers who recognize the trade-offs and synergies that these major sectors provide. Addressing increased global demand while staying attuned to environmental challenges, the panelists engaged with a variety of research aimed at addressing questions of implementing this analysis at different scalar levels as well as how to best implement governance and management practices.
This webinar was organised by IWRA and the Sustainable Water Future Programme. The webinar was moderated by Scott McKenzie (PhD Student, University of British Columbia) and panelists included Rabi Mohtar (Texas A&M), Bassel Daher (Texas A&M), Jeri Sullivan Graham (Los Alamos National Laboratory), Dawit Mekonnen (International Food Policy Research Institute), Anik Bhaduri (Griffith University), Beatriz Mayor Rodríguez (Water Observatory Botin Foundation), Alisher Mirzabaev (University of Bonn), Maksud Bekchanov (International Water Management Institute).
