The Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus approach is one way for cities to devise more sustainable development pathways. The approach advocates that supplying water to cities takes much energy, and that much water is also needed to produce energy and food. Planning these three sectors in an integrated manner may enable better water, energy and food security and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Panel discussion, conducted by the Technical University of Munich will showcase different aspects of this nexus from various domains such as Academic, Industry and Non for Profit organisations.
