Achieving water, energy and food (WEF) securities is a priority for southern Africa, especially under unfavourable climate change, increasing urbanisation, population growth, and advanced ecosystems degradation. To this end, a collaborative and inclusive approach between the three sectors is essential. The WEF Nexus Winter School is a capacity-building initiative that supports early career researchers, postgraduate students, managers and practitioners in understanding WEF nexus thinking. Participants will improve their knowledge of the WEF nexus and get acquainted with the concepts, new frameworks, tools and methods for analysing the WEF nexus.
The Call for Applications for the 1st SADC WEF Nexus Winter School, held in South Africa from 26-30 July 2021, is now open! The deadline for applications is 31 March 2021.
