Prof. Jörg E. Drewes and Dr. Daphne Gondhalekar (Chair of Urban Water Systems Engineering) at the Technical University of Munich are conducting a research project on the urban Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus. ​A WEF Nexus workshop will be held at IIT Madras, Chennai, India ​on March 15-17th 2017. The workshop is being organized in collaboration with the Indo-German Centre for Sustainability (IGCS) at IIT Madras and the Water Future Programme of Future Earth.




The aim of the workshop is to discuss potential case study cities in Germany and India for planned ​WEF Nexus pilot projects, to co-author a funding proposal for this, and to co-author a WEF Nexus special issue in a peer-reviewed journal. The key element of these planned​ pilot projects is decentralized urban water reclamation and reuse for bio-energy production and urban agriculture irrigation.
