Systems- & people-centred water and irrigation
Work on the water energy food nexus has been limited to one presentation at ICID/IWF which can be downloaded here. Lankford ICID nexus types 24 Feb 2012 final. The title of the presentation is “The water-food-energy-land nexus – types and typologies”. I basically ask about the function of the nexus seen in different versions of subordination – in other words, what is the final aim of the nexus if one dimensions is promoted or demoted over another.
In June 2014 I was part of early planning for the FE2W collaboration held in Oxford: http://www.fe2wnetwork.org/
As a result of the discussions, I compiled a normative framework for considering the interactions between the different sectors of food, energy, environment and water. This powerpoint can be downloaded here: Normative nexus Lankford June 2014
