Building resilience in the face of nexus threats: local knowledge and social practices of Brazilian youth

Project description

How youth cope with resource insecurity

Building long-term security of resources (food, water and energy) requires interconnected solutions that need to consider vulnerable groups such as youth. This is in addition to the risks posed by natural hazards. In this context, the EU-funded NEXUS-DRR project will develop a new and interconnected approach. Specifically, it will investigate the threats to the food water energy nexus in Brazil from the perspective of marginalised youth who are also affected by environmental hazards like floods and landslides. The project will take a participatory citizen science approach to explore young people’s everyday lived experiences and practices related to the nexus. It will also assess what young people do to reduce their vulnerability in terms of resource insecurity.
