Climate change and growing populations are placing additional pressure on the availability of food, energy and water especially in the Mediterranean parts of Europe and particularly in Africa, accompanied by an increased environmental footprint. The Water, Energy, Food, Ecosystems Nexus approach is key to ensuring resilient, circular and green economies and to achieving Sustainable Development Goals. Our guest lecturer will address these challenges and explain how a range of stakeholders across countries need to be engaged. He will also explain how science diplomacy can advance co-development in the EU and in African communities using the example of the EU funded project WEFE4MED. Our first respondent from Africa will explain the case of the West African Republic of Benin (French: République du Bénin). The second respondent from BOKU will present a novel assessment tool for local-global WEFE interactions (Glocull project).
