Integrated Water, Energy and Agriculture Programmatic Approach in Bolivia

In Bolivia, German Development Cooperation agricultural, water and energy programmes are developing joint indicators, in a more nexus-driven approach. Moving forward, activities could include things such as increased energy efficiency of water utilities, production of the required energy in the processes of drinking water treatment and provision and reusing waste water in agriculture.
