This issue of the UA Magazine discusses this urban-food-energy nexus with a focus on the role of the private sector. Emphasis is on its enabling environment in promoting a circular economy. This UA Magazine shares experiences and cases from several sources. The West-African Bio-wastes for Energy and Fertiliser (WABEF) project complements a recent study done by RUAF for the Dutch Food Business Knowledge Network on the role of the private sector and social enterprises in shaping or enabling city region food systems. It also features experiences from the Resource Recovery and Reuse programme of IWMI (the CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems). Lastly it includes information from projects of RUAF and its partners on the safe recovery and use of energy, water and nutrients from waste streams, such as from Ghana, Gaza and Nepal, and from HIVOS and SNV.
