The "nexus" is where food, water and energy systems intersect. It takes water (lots of it) to create food and energy. It also takes energy to move, heat and treat water and to produce food, and sometimes we even use food crops as a source of energy. Find out how anyone - from a single person to an entire nation - can make more sustainable choices with nexus thinking.
