“Operationalizing the Urban NEXUS: Towards resource efficient and integrated cities and metropolitan regions” highlights benefits of Urban NEXUS approach for resource optimization in cities around the world.

GIZ and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability are pleased to announce the publication of their joint study, “Operationalizing the Urban NEXUS: Towards resource efficient and integrated cities and metropolitan regions.” The pioneering study was carried out on behalf of the German Development Cooperation. It builds upon the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (BMZ) and GIZ’s work on the NEXUS approach over the past four years and upon established concepts and practices of integrated planning to provide city makers with a framework for integrated and sustainable urban development.

Opinion

Does a shift in global policy debates toward the “water-energy-food security nexus” – that is, looking at competition over natural resources to provide for these vital needs – translate into any real change in the way water is managed? Is the concept useful in this era of a changing climate?

River Management

If rivers run dry or we pollute them, it’s not just wildlife that suffers; water companies, farmers and power utilities are affected too. The trade-offs referred to in abstract food-water-energy nexus debates often take tangible form when decisions are made about how to use rivers. Yet we hear little in nexus debates about these vital freshwater ecosystems. - By Dave Tickner
