This discussion is part of the World We Want 2015 Process. It focusses on what is called the "energy nexus" and delves further into how energy must be integrated with other social, economic and environmental issues.
-Do you think there are close links between energy, water, land, and food security? What about other development priorities? Please share practical examples, as possible.
-How do we best promote coherent national energy planning (e.g. policy and budgetary processes) that also advances larger development goals, for example, taking into account the water-energy-food security nexus?
-Bearing in mind the linkages between energy and other development goals, what factors would create an enabling environment for energy initiatives (of all sorts) to have impact at a meaningful scale?
-In what ways can stakeholders take action to advance a more integrated approach to energy access, the use of renewables, greater energy efficiency, or other areas for progress?
The World We Want has set itself the target to gather the priorities of people from every corner of the world and to help build a collective vision that will be used directly by the United Nations and World Leaders to plan a new development agenda launching in 2015.
