Water Security: The Water-Food-Energy-Climate Nexus

Water Security: The Water-Food-Energy-Climate NexusAs an important step toward the understanding of the water-food-energy-climate nexus, the World Economic Forum Water Initiative helped publish this book, which collects perspectives on the common water challenges we share from government leaders, religious groups, business, non-governmental organizations, academics, entrepreneurs, financial experts, journalists, trade specialists, and many others. Issues covered – including agriculture, trade, national security, business, and innovative water partnerships – set out the case for how crucial it is to overhaul our management of freshwater to meet our future social and economic needs.

This book is an important and comprehensive piece of work that seeks to deepen the awareness and understanding of the nexus, which spans across the issue of water, and to explore solutions to the water scarcity challenge ahead.
