Growing food takes water and energy, among other resources, while diminishing natural water resources through hydro-energy dams can restrict food sources like fish. When our needs for food, energy, and water are all growing, how do our actions in one area impact the other? If you start to solve our modern environmental problems by considering the relationship between these needs, or the “Food-Energy-Water Nexus”, water justice can be expansive. Kat speaks to experts in ‘nexus thinking’ and ‘nexus doing’ to understand this kind of systems thinking, and how it can be utilised as we fight for water justice for all.

Dr Pamela Katic has been working on nexus thinking and doing before the term arose, you can follow this journey here. Sarah Torhan’s work is extremely fascinating, you can follow some of it here.
