Application Deadline: 31st March 2021

About the Award: Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Security Nexus Winter School 2021: Achieving water, energy and food (WEF) securities is a priority for southern Africa, especially under unfavourable climate change, increasing urbanisation, population growth, and advanced ecosystems degradation. Achieving WEF securities will require a collaborative and inclusive approach, which considers the interconnections and
interdependencies between the three sectors.

Since 2011, when the WEF nexus first came to prominence, various southern African actors have been championing it at various levels. There has been progress in building a shared understanding of the WEF nexus concept, using it to facilitate discourse through various dialogues, and recently developing and analytical models/tools. The WEF Nexus Winter School is a capacity-building initiative aimed at providing support to early career researchers, postgraduate students, managers and practitioners in
understanding nexus thinking, particularly the WEF nexus, as a transformative approach to sustainable natural resources management and socio-economic development. As the field of nexus research is relatively recent, participants will be exposed to this rapidly developing and critically important way of thinking. Participants will improve their knowledge of the WEF nexus and get acquainted with the concepts, how to facilitate discourse and new frameworks, tools and methods for analysing the WEF nexus.

Type: Short course

Eligibility: Early career researchers, postgraduates, managers, practitioners (NGOs, Government, River Basin Organisations), and
stakeholders conducting research and development related to the WEF nexus and related fields such as agriculture, forestry, water, energy, engineering, climate change, ecosystems, and environment. Applicants must demonstrate an advanced (C1) English level (please, see the application form).
