The Food-Energy-Water Nexus


University of California Berkeley

This is an overview of the food-energy-water nexus from Dr. Noureddin Driouech (UC Berkeley). Understanding the complex relationship between water, energy and food systems has become critically important to the development of a sustainable and secure future for all nations and regions. There are many synergies and tradeoffs between water, energy use and food production. Recognizing these synergies and balancing these tradeoffs is central to jointly ensuring the availability of water, energy and food.
