Summary: The Water-Energy-Food Nexus is a conceptual tool that, according to its designers, allows all dimensions of water-related problems to be taken into account. This presentation, using the example of the Southwestern United States, will attempt to answer two questions:
- How does the NEXUS allow us to understand the serious water crisis that this region is currently experiencing?
- Does the concept of NEXUS provide clues to respond to it?
