The road to resilience: Managing the risks of the energy-water-food nexus

Source(s):  World Energy Council (WEC)

This report investigates the risks of the energy-water-food nexus and examines the integrated coordination that is needed for financing resilience. It focuses understanding how the energy sector can better manage climate change impacts on land and water whilst still aiming to balance the Energy Trilemma. The initial findings lay out the initial understanding of the risks posed by the energy-water-food nexus in the energy industry. By understanding how to technically and financially address these risks, the report provides recommendations for the energy industry to work together with the financial community, investors and policymakers to share and promote measures that must be incorporated into energy infrastructure design and investment decisions.

This report is the second risk dimension investigated as part of the Financing Resilient Energy Infrastructure initiative. The first report in the series, ‘The road to resilience – managing and financing extreme weather risk’, recommended moving towards a more systemic understanding of resilience, in order to best manage extreme weather risks.
