This chapter introduces ‘nexus shocks’. It explores who and what they impact and how, why they are important, and why the lens of nexus shocks provides a useful approach to practically explore and inform decision-making about climate shocks to food-energy-water-environment (FEWE) resources. Characteristics of nexus shocks are presented and discussed in the context of decision-making as well as how interpretation of these characteristics across stakeholder groups and sectors can lead to detrimental decision-making processes. The chapter closes with an overview of the Nexus Shocks project, the findings of which form the basis of this book.
