Nexus

The WEFN (Water-Energy-Food Nexus) project aims to maximize human-environmental security (minimize the vulnerability) by choosing management structures and policies that optimize both the water-food and water-energy connections in Asia-Pacific coastal regions. To optimize governance and management within these inter-connected needs, it is desirable to increase human-environmental security by improving social management of the water-energy-food nexus. We define the joint security approach as optimized policy for both critical water clusters. Optimal policies will develop joint security approaches for human-environmental security in the coastal region of the Ring of Fire, including stakeholders and decision-makers.

This project started in Apr. 2013 as a 5-year project in a research framework called the "Futurability Initiatives" run by the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN), a member institute of the Inter-University Research Institute Corporation, National Institute for the Humanities, Japan. It is one of RIHN’s core research projects.
