Understanding the Changing Water-Energy-Food Nexus in Kuwait and the Gulf Region

Dr Christian Siderius from LSE Grantham Research Institute and Dr Mohamad Yassine from the Gulf University for Science and Technology.

The project investigates existing approaches to model the water-energy-food (WEF) nexus, develop a novel mechanistic quantitative model and apply this to Kuwait’s WEF nexus in conjunction with that of each of the GCC states, map­ping the interactions, trade-off, and co-benefits between Kuwait and other GCC states across the Arabian Peninsula, and – to a more limited extent – the rest of the world.
