Creating a tool to supporting sustainability transitions for the water-energy-food nexus policies

This initiative was developed to create a tool to support the sustainability transitions for the water-energy-food nexus policies. For this, there were three objectives: a) find a useful definition of sustainability transitions for policies, b) find a methodological tool for the sustainability transitions, c) test whether the methodological tool worked in practical settings: Mexico City’s water-energy-food policies. For this reason, a literature review found that the “Doughnut Economics perspective” served as a sustainability definition that could be contextualized to different places. Moreover, it was found that an evaluation of policy that analyzed the policies’ theory of change could understand the gaps in the policies required for transitions. Finally, it was found that to test the methodological tools, a stakeholder feasibility test had to be done. For this reason, we are now currently making a project to create Mexico City’s Doughnut Economics Coalition. This is done to assess whether this tool can serve to integrate sectors and agents, by using a governance and nexus approach. If so, this tool would serve to understand the challenges and opportunities for the feasibility of sustainable transitions found with the methodological tools as well as find responsible agents that will make the change required for these. With this last stage in our initiative, we are testing if this integrated understanding will create a collaborative platform that nurtures creativity and creates the support required for the sustainability transitions transformative change that Mexico City requires for the water-energy-food nexus policies.
