The research exchange was mainly designed to initiate interactive discussions with identified experts on important aspects of the water–energy–food nexus. This was facilitated by seminars on the current status of research in natural resource management and food production in India. Additionally, a critical review of the research on some aspects of the WEF security nexus was undertaken to better understand the WEF concept.
This IUKWC Researcher Exchange aimed to:
- Study the water–energy–food security nexus, relevant technology and policy issues for increased adaptation to climate change impacts on agriculture, in India.
- Explore opportunities for collaborative research on issues relating to the water–energy– food (WEF) nexus under climate change, and improvement in weather and water smart technology advisory services: a key concern of the IDC Foundation and the IUKWC.
- Increase awareness amongst the water professionals in India and the UK on India’s current water issues and approaches in the food sector through workshops, scientific papers and seminars.
