Partnerships for Bringing the WEF Nexus to Life

In a business-as-usual scenario, it will not be possible to ensure water, energy and food security for all, since the natural resources are limited, vulnerable and strongly inter-connected. A radical transformation in planning and resource management is thus needed. In this context, the Nexus perspective helps identifying and overcoming trade-offs between water, energy and food security.

 

This seminar will bring together key actors building partnerships across sectors for implementing a nexus approach. Focus will be given on how to assess Nexus trade-offs and how to address them at international, national and regional level. First lessons learnt will be drawn from the Nairobi Nexus Dialogue convened by AU and UNSGAB in November 2012 and discussed how regional Nexus dialogues can contribute to build consensus on specific policy issues related to the water, energy and food security Nexus. Regarding the international agenda for sustainable development, the conceptual relevance of the Nexus perspective for post 2015 goals/SDGs will be an important element of the seminar.
