The WEF Web project is run by the University of Glasgow and addresses the challenge of understanding and hence identifying the dynamic, interlinked inter-dependencies across the nexus networks which are physical (water, waste, energy and food), social and political (individual, regulatory and policy), ecological and digital at multiple, nested scales (local, regional and national).

The aim is to map the WEF nexus to identify boundaries, interdependencies, feedbacks, bottlenecks and disconnects in the network dependencies across scales (national, regional, local and individual) and over multiple dimensions (including social, civic, economic, physical, ecological, political and digital). From the multiple maps we will identify what entry points there are for change in the nexus at these different scales and dimensions.
