At Rizq, we believe in the transformative power of research to address complex societal challenges. Our Research and Knowledge Division is dedicated to advancing cutting-edge research in the food-water-energy nexus to provide sustainable and climate-smart solutions for the future of our sustenance systems. Our mission is to translate our research into actionable knowledge and social business solutions that can make a real difference in the world.
The Water-Energy-Food(WEF) nexus is a critical area of concern globally; With more than 2 billion people worldwide lacking access to safe drinking water [UN Water], approximately 690 million people suffering from chronic hunger(FAO), 1.2 billion people lacking access to electricity [IEA], and the World Health Organization (WHO) predicting over 250,000 additional climate induced deaths per year from 2030 to 2050-the issues encompassing WEF nexus have evolved more than an environmental concern into a global humanitarian crisis.
