SOAS Water Group Research: Water Security

SOAS research has made a major international contribution to understanding how water scarce regions and economies achieve water security. The concept of the water-food-trade nexus developed at SOAS has become an essential feature in any analysis of water security and just as important as the consideration of water endowments or allocative efficiency. Water security is a global issue and current research is grappling with the conceptualisation and exemplification of the very strategic nexus of water-food-trade-energy-climate change.
