Resource challenges are highly interconnected. Can the idea of a food-energy-water 'nexus' become more than another buzzword, and help us to identify solutions?
The dramatic spike in resource use over the last two decades, particularly in the emerging economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China, has exacerbated the threat of resource scarcity. And the world’s failure to curb emissions of greenhouse gases means that the impacts of climate change will be felt strongly across food, water and energy – the three dimensions of the "nexus".
