Introduction to Part II: Integrative Frameworks and Participatory Governance for Effective Water-Energy-Food Systems Management

Chapter

Abstract

The establishment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals has provided greater impetus for nexus thinking and integrated planning and policy between sectors, systems and resources. Water, energy and food (WEF) are three key resources that are fundamental to human survival. This section includes studies that examine important interdependencies and interactions between these resources and solutions for more integrated management of them.
