Call for Nominations: Steering Committee members for Knowledge-Action Network on Water-Energy-Food Nexus

20 January 2018: deadline for nominations!

Future Earth is seeking nominations for members to join the Steering Committee of this research collaboration. Terms will begin in February 2018.

Knowledge-Action Networks are networks of people and organisations collaborating to build the knowledge and tools needed to tackle the greatest sustainability challenges of our time. They seek to establish collaboration between existing projects, networks and individuals. The Water-Energy-Food Nexus Knowledge-Action Network aims to better understand interactions between water, energy and food systems, and how the synergies and trade-offs among them can be better managed with the goal of delivering these needs for all in a sustainable and equitable way.

With the support of the Future Earth Secretariat, the international Steering Committee will initiate and stimulate activities of the Nexus Knowledge-Action Network. Activities initiated by the Steering Committee will enhance collaboration and interaction among the research communities and practice communities working on Nexus issues, spurring the co-creation of new knowledge and the application of knowledge in practice.  

The Nexus Knowledge-Action Network Steering Committee’s activities aim to:

  • Build community and mobilise capacity to collaborate on Water-Energy-Food Nexus research and innovation
  • Facilitate, co-design, synthesise and amplify research on the Water-Energy-Food Nexus to scale solutions across sectors and geographies
