MedCities is one of the 12 partners of WEFE4MED project, funded by PRIMA.  The overall objective of WEFE4MED is to foster the adoption of a Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems (WEFE) Nexus approach in the Mediterranean through a Nexus Community of Practice to confront the climatic and environmental challenges facing societies and agro-ecological systems. The community of practice will bring together practitioners, scientists, policymakers, civil society, media, entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors. It will convene, share knowledge and build capacities by deploying best practices and science-based policies and innovative solutions inspired by demonstration sites, showcasing the benefits of integrated natural resource management for sustainable, climate-resilient development in the Mediterranean.

The Kick-off meeting, hosted by the lead partner of the project (The Cyprus Institute) took place on the last 26 and 27th of October in Nicosia. Over the next four years, MedCities will actively participate as partners in the creation and consolidation of the WEFE community of practice and showcase to MedCities city members practical and real examples that illustrate the benefits of applying the WEFE approach when planning and implementing projects and strategies.

The project will contribute to ODS 1, 2, 6, 7, 9, 13 and 14.
