As part of the ‘Understanding Innovative Governance for the Food, Water and Energy Nexus in Cities (IFWEN)’ project, the final workshop for the dissemination of project learnings was held in Panaji on the 27th of May 2022. Participants from 10 Indian cities attended the event. The project examined capabilities and enabling factors supporting the implementation of food, water and energy nexus approaches that use Green and Blue Infrastructure (GBI) and their association with spatial planning and governance.
The project led to the development of an IFWEN toolkit that will support decision-makers to assess sustainable transitions in the food, water and energy sectors, and the potential opportunities for synergy between these resources. The toolkit also focuses on the building of innovative capabilities in cities, delivering innovative solutions to mitigate climate change and biodiversity loss, while advancing development goals ranging from food security to job creation.
