Visit the The Nexus Resource Platform for connections beyond the SUGI call

The Nexus Resource Platform is the leading global knowledge hub for managing and sharing resources on the Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus. It enables practitioners, researchers and policymakers to think beyond sectors to ensure access to water, energy and food for all. In 2021, the platform re-published the SUGI midterm report and promoted various materials from the call. Visit their web to access a variety of results and organisations working actively on the challenges and opportunities related to the SUGI call. The platform invites you to submit your materials to contribute to the dissemination of Nexus resources.
