Sustainable Urban Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy Nexus-Logo

The Sustainable Urban Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy Nexus is a call jointly established by the Belmont Forum and the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe.  The cooperation was established in order to bring together the fragmented research and expertise across the globe to find innovative new solutions to the Food-Water-Energy Nexus challenge.

The call aims to develop more resilient, applied urban solutions that bring inter- and trans-disciplinary research and innovation together from across the globe, to benefit a much wider range of stakeholders. The rapid urbanization of the world’s population underscores the importance of this focus.   International partners are invited to develop solutions targeting this Food-Water-Energy Nexus challenge.
