WEF Nexus in Africa Initiative is a network of academic, public and private sector institutions addressing significant scientific, social, environmental and engineering challenges at the water-energy-food nexus.


We seek to build a water, energy and food (WEF) nexus alliance by using cutting-edge research and applied knowledge that provides technical knowledge though public private partnerships to implement locally appropriate solutions to challenges at the intersection of the WEF systems. The alliance welcomes stakeholders from across Africa to work toward applying novel WEF nexus approaches to address development challenges.


Our vision is a community of practice that fosters capacity building with local and global partners that address the intersection of the water, energy and food (WEF) systems in Africa resulting in more sustainable communities, opportunities for project development, learning and outreach in the WEF nexus arena.
