ABOUT THE MEETING

The Luc Hoffmann Institute at WWF International, IUCN and the Geneva Water Hub (University of Geneva) are partnering with the Perspectivity Foundation to host a series of thought leader meetings on the food energy water nexus. The aim is to reach a better understanding of intersectoral issues between food, energy and water and contribute to implementation of the nexus by strengthening its conceptual foundations. Two thought leader dialogues on “Directions for the Nexus” held in 2015 identified a need to examine more closely the theme of ecosystems and ecosystem service trade-offs in the nexus. The objective of this meeting is to re-visit the design of the well-established Perspectivity Challenge on understanding the relevance of the food-energy-water nexus in practice – the Stress Nexus! – in order to identify entry points for discussing ecosystem services. Perspectivity, as one of the original design partners of the Stress Nexus! joins the partnership in this endeavor.

BACKGROUND

Participants at the first thought leader dialogue in Geneva, June 2015 played the Stress Nexus! Perspectivity Challenge. A roundtable reflection suggested that the environment and ecosystem services could be further represented or supported in the challenge, as this represented the situation for the food-energy-water nexus broadly.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Exploration and rapid testing of a practical means to incorporate ecosystems, environmental issues and the food-energy-water nexus through the Stress Nexus! Perspectivity Challenge. A revised version of the challenge will be used to structure further thought leader dialogues on this topic at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in September 2016.

EXPECTED OUTPUTS

  1. Specific suggestions on how reframing and/or redesigning the Stress Nexus! Challenge can better highlight the links to ecosystem service concepts in the nexus.
  2. An action plan for reframing and/or redesigning the Stress Nexus! Challenge for potential use by WWF, IUCN and other conservation organisations as an innovative tool for supporting dialogue on food, energy, water and environment interconnections.
  3. Outline for a background paper on ecosystems, environmental issues and the food-energy-water nexus.

PARTICIPANTS

We are inviting a mix of 12-15 practitioners, private sector and academics who are expert in the topics of the food-energy-water nexus and ecosystem services.
