La Plataforma de Recursos para la Seguridad del Agua, la Energía y los Alimentos es una plataforma independiente de información y facilitación desarrollada en el marco del Programa Global "Diálogos Regionales Nexo",implementado por la Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), GmbH, financiada conjuntamente por el Ministerio Federal de Cooperación y Desarrollo Económicos de Alemania y la Unión Europea.

Estamos trabajando para integrar el diálogo de Nexo sobre el agua, la energía y la seguridad alimentaria en diálogos de política regional de alto nivel, decisiones de inversión y dentro de la agenda internacional de desarrollo sostenible.

Nuestro Programa implementa los Diálogos Regionales de Nexo que apoyan a las partes interesadas regionales para poner en práctica el concepto WEF Nexo en recomendaciones de políticas y proyectos piloto concretos.

Historia
2010

El enfoque del WEF Nexo ha ascendido a la agenda internacional después de haber sido promovido por primera vez en eventos internacionales de formulación de políticas en 2010.

2011

La Conferencia Nexo de Bonn 2011, organizada por el Gobierno alemán, presentó evidencia sobre cómo un enfoque WEF Nexo puede mejorar la seguridad del agua, la energía y los alimentos aumentando la eficiencia, reduciendo las compensaciones y creando sinergias, al tiempo que mejorando la gobernanza en los diferentes sectores.

2014

A partir de 2014, GIZ, en nombre del Ministerio Federal Alemán de Cooperación Económica y Desarrollo, comenzó a implementar las actividades del Programa de Diálogos Regionales de Nexo.

2016 — 2020

El Programa de Diálogos Regionales de Nexo Fase I fue el resultado de los esfuerzos internacionales para poner en práctica el enfoque Nexo. El programa ha sido financiado conjuntamente por la Unión Europea y el Ministerio Federal Alemán de Cooperación Económica y Desarrollo. Está diseñado para estimular los cinco Diálogos Regionales de Nexo (NRD) en los que participan diversas partes interesadas, incluidos los responsables políticos nacionales y regionales, el sector privado, la academia y la sociedad civil.

2020 — 2023

Los principales objetivos de la segunda fase son:

  1. institucionalizar el enfoque WEF Nexo en las estructuras de gobernanza nacionales y regionales y las decisiones de inversión en las Regiones
  2. mostrar el valor añadido WEF Nexo con proyectos de demostración en las Regiones
  3. promover el intercambio y la difusión de información a través del Centro de Conocimiento
