The IFWEN project has published a new paper called “Understanding and conceptualising how urban green and blue infrastructure affects the food, water, and energy nexus: A synthesis of the literature”. The project is supported in Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy Nexus. The paper is available here.
Current research focuses on isolated analysis, lacking integrated studies needed for decision making supporting tools. While isolated analyses lead to connectivity failures and can result in adverse impacts, integrated analyses can identify interdependencies of environmental resources between parts of a cycle and across different scales, which can increase resource efficiency and minimize environmental degradation. Therefore, our key findings point out the importance of linking the effects of Green Blue Infrastructure (GBI) on each component of Food-Water-Energy Nexus (FWEN) in both research and policy making.
