Co-creating evidence-based business roadmaps and policy solutions for enhancing coastal-rural collaboration and synergies

Co-Creating Solutions for Innovation

COASTAL project coordinator, Jean-Luc De Kok attended the kick-off meeting of the H2020 co-funded project WASTE FEW ULL on 12 October at Bath University (UK), and gave a presentation on the COASTAL approach.  

Between 2018 and 2021 the WASTE FEW ULL: Waste Food-Energy-Water Urban Living Labs – Mapping and Reducing Waste in the Food-Energy-Water Nexus project, co-funded under the Eranet Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative, will map and substantially reduce waste in the food-energy-water nexus in cities across three continents: Europe, Africa and South America. The project will establish four Urban Living Labs (ULLs) of stakeholders to a) map resource fl ows b) identify critical dysfunctional linear pathways c) agree the response most appropriate to the local context d) model the market and non-market economic value of each intervention and e) engage with decision makers to close each loop.

The Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy Nexus is a call jointly established by the Belmont Forum and the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe.
