For Policy Makers

KFAS offers workshops and training missions for policymakers looking to expand their skills and share experiences in Kuwait and abroad. We aim to advance evidence-based public policy-making and evaluation and the promotion of quality scientific research, as well as enhance the ecosystem for collaborative research and innovation here in Kuwait.

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. The project considers future scenarios of different policy options related to the impact of oil prices and climate change on the security of the nexus.
