The Water-Energy-Food Nexus (WEF Nexus) addresses the interrelated nature of our global natural resource systems. This reflection aims to better understand the interactions between the natural environment and human activities, and to suggest a more coordinated management and use of natural resources. A set of solutions are proposed and some best practices at the international level on the coordinated use of water and energy are presented.
