Information System

The Nexus Information System is a geo-referenced visualization tool embedding the complex information related to the Nexus. It makes it possible to establish a connection between the different metrics used to storage data about water, food, agriculture, energy or climate, among others. These non-equivalent metrics are necessary to generate useful information in relation to aspects of the nexus that can only be studied at different scales and using different dimensions of analysis. The NIS will serve as a guideline to statistical institutes in the design of nexus-related databases and for informing the development of integrated resource management strategies. The focus here is in maintaining coherence in integrated analyses carried out at different spatial scales (global, EU, national, regional).
