Description:

Water and energy are two interwoven factors affecting environmental management and urban development planning. Meanwhile, rapid urban development and a changing climate exacerbate the magnitude and effects of water-energy interactions in what nexus defines. These factors and their mutual interactions affect how we evaluate urban developmental alternatives. In this perspective, a few pressing issues and a systems approach are discussed for quantitative analysis of the water-energy-climate-urban nexus in climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Purpose/Objective:

Communication of research directions on water-energy nexus to the scientific community
