In recent years, the notion of the nexus has gained traction in the domain of natural resource governance. It has become the defining vocabulary to understand the interlinkages between land, water, food and climate. Since the 2008 World Economic Forum pushed key players to be concerned about water, food and energy security and their interlinkages, the nexus has become a strong policy metaphor to address the ‘world in crises’. This report provides a synthesis of ideas and cases discussed at the Nexus Network Resource Conflicts workshop, held in the Institute of Development Studies on Monday 29 February 2016.
