With the global population expected to reach nine billion by 2050, our capacity to provide enough food, water and energy relies on our understanding and management of the complex interdependencies in the climate-energy-water nexus. This book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the interdependencies between these sectors and the knock-on consequences of those interactions for other sectors, such as food production and biodiversity conservation. The interdisciplinary nature of the book across the three sectors of climate, energy and water means that it will be valuable for advanced students, researchers and policymakers across a broad range of fields, including environmental/energy/water/climate policy, environmental economics, climate science, hydrology, ecology and geography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This interesting book focuses on the key issues of energy and water security and, by implication, food security, in the context of climate change. It is enormously diverse both in terms of authorship from many different disciplines and geographic locations. This is important as these problems are ubiquitous from a geographic perspective and will need addressing from a variety of disciples. I thoroughly recommend it.' Sir John Beddington, Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford; former Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Government
'This valuable book provides a wealth of knowledge and information, based on the experience of a number of countries, to all those grappling with the vexed question of how best to ensure the integrated and sustainable management of our scarce natural resources in the face of climate change and a growing population.' Barbara Schreiner, Executive Director of the Pegasys Institute
