Texas A&M: Water Energy Food (WEF) Nexus


Texas A&M

The WEF Nexus builds on the integrated water resources management and introduces an holistic, trans-disciplinary, inclusive multi-stakeholder platform for resource allocation. The nexus platform allows the identification of local and site specific tradeoffs and hotspots, which facilitate dialogue among stakeholders. From among those hotspots, the role of soils in global water and food security, and the vital function of soil as a structured, dynamic, natural, organized system and of green water to food and water securities is explored. The group focus is upon localization of resources, use of the nexus platform, improved utilization of greenwater, and better understating the impacts of water reuse on the soil–water ecosystem.
