A nexus is the place where points intersect, linking many different parts of a system together. Water is the nexus between food, energy, and people. Water is required to meet the demands of our growing population, to maintain and improve environmental health, and to support the production of food and energy. As the availability of water changes and our population grows, meeting the demands in the Nexus will become increasingly challenging.In 2015 Environment, Land Use, Water

Calgary as a city continues to lead Canada in terms of population growth and, as its economy continues to grow, increasingly competes on a global scale for both business and talent. As Calgary becomes recognized as a global city, it needs to keep up with other Great Cities to attract successful businesses, elite-level talent, and provide critical infrastructure support for economic success.
With Calgary’s growth in mind, the Calgary Chamber launched the Great Cities initiative, which looks to understand the importance of cities in the global economy, and the impact municipal decisions and actions have on the success of a community.In 2013 Community Research, Industry Leadership, Industry Research
