Priorities and funded actions


  • Integrate Nexus considerations into public and business decision making at different governance levels through innovative toolboxes and guidelines supporting policymakers and practitioners in the implementation of adaptation strategies
  • Increase resilience to climate change, ensuring good quantitative and qualitative status of water, sustainable agriculture, food and energy production, and healthy ecosystems
  • Increase the socio-economic livelihood conditions of vulnerable populations
  • Share best Nexus practices across disciplinary silos in a context of combined natural, economic and social systems


Priority 1 – Early identification of causal connections between socio-economic impacts and measures to build local resilience of WEFE resource management.

Priority 2 – Nexus demonstration cases as socio-innovative adaptation experiments in different contexts.

Priority 3 – Identification of WEFE production and consumption structures’ impacts on the life-supporting abilities and local communities’ social and economic performance under climate change and demographic constraints.

Among financed actions 

  • Address the interplay of impacts, for example, of disruption of regional and international trade flows of food crops, on people’s displacement
  • Explore the associations between the trading of crop products and local usages of water, energy, ecosystem resources under different scenarios
  • Translate outcomes into WEFE resource-related indicators to monitor these strategies’ qualitative and quantitative impacts and provide hints for possible futures
  • Enable feedback to decision-makers to develop Nexus policies and strategies, ensuring a long-lasting adaptation capacity of potentially vulnerable populations

  • Initial duration of the action: 36 months


  • Be any legal entity created under the EU law
