Abstract

Water, energy and food (WEF) systems are highly interconnected and they directly and indirectly affect one another. Science based WEF nexus assessment tools that quantify the direct and indirect impacts on water, energy and food systems are essential to inform policy makers on the effects of the present and future scenarios.

This poster presents a quantitative WEF nexus assessment methodology and web tool (Q-Nexus) to analyze WEF policy scenarios for improved long-term outcomes. The Q-Nexus Model web tool (https://www.q-nexus.net/) creates an environment for multisectoral coordinated planning, it allows different actors from different sectors to work together on the same multisectoral nexus project. In this way the nexus tool acts as platform to allow all actors to work on the same environment and allows these actors to propose and analyze any planning scenarios and to access the scenario data and results. First, the conceptual framework and theory of the quantitative nexus approach are introduced. Second, the Q-Nexus Model web tool and related functions are presented.

Finally, we conclude and introduce further development.
