Columbia Water Center: Water-Food-Energy Nexus
Columbia Water Center
The CWC studies how the water, food, and energy sectors are interrelated and how climate affects the relationship. On the applied side, the CWC aims to promote water and energy savings in the agricultural sector in water-stressed farming regions. Work has been done with governments in India to reform existing energy subsidies by incentivizing electricity savings that save both water and energy without decreasing crop yields. The CWC also develops seasonal forecasts to guide decision-making in the water and energy sectors.
