Developing the Capacity of ESCWA Member Countries to address the Water and Energy Nexus for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals - Regional Policy Toolkit

The nexus highlights the interdependencies between the water, energy and food sectors, and the need to pursue an integrated management framework across the three sectors. The water-energy-food security nexus framework is particularly suited to the Arab region given the stressors, constraints and strong interdependencies between sectors. It is further necessitated by the cross-sectoral effect of climate change predicted for the region. The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), as part of efforts to help member countries achieve an integrated approach to the SDGs - Sustainable Development Goals, is implementing a project to develop their capacity to examine and address the water and energy nexus.
