The report was co-authored by Professor Dick Fenner with Dr Dennis Konadu, Professor Keith Richards and Professor Julian Allwood and is based on a series of invited contributions from industry specialists who participated in a recent workshop to examine potential future challenges with water and energy system interdependencies in the UK. A number of recommendations are made including the need for institutional reform  all levels  - in research, disciplinary structures, organisations, adminiistration and regulation, to enable multi-disciplinary approaches to key management questions  and to institutionalise a process of testing single-discipline decision making across the boundaries of other disciplines. A similar report on UK land and energy interactions was published previously. Both reports are available here:
