About the NEXUS

The challenge of thinking in a Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus perspective is central to the Green Economy and the consideration of sustainability development goals.

The Bonn2011 Nexus Conference from 16-18 November 2011 resulted, among others, in this online resource platform, which presents a large variety of documents, presentations, news, messages and other Information from various sources on the Nexus. It aims to demonstrate the relevance of a Nexus approach for sustainable development and raises awareness that more systemic thinking is needed.
