Project Report // National Policy Guidelines for Mainstreaming the Water-Energy-Food Nexus
By L. Mansour, A. Kramer, H. Abaza, N. AlOuran, W. AlZubari, A. Carius, A. Ulrich and H. Hoff. The National Guidelines are part of a series of studies and policy guides prepared within the assignement “Mainstreaming the Water-Energy-Food Security (WEF) Nexus into Policies and Institutions in the MENA Region”. This report summarizes the situation for Egypt and Jordan in terms of water, energy, and land resources, as well as their related human securities, their critical interlinkages, trade-offs and their synergies, as identified in the Nexus Evidence Base.
It maps key institutions and policies in each of these two countries to those critical interlinkages. Based on that, the report identifies institutional entry points (processes and partners) for increased coordination and cooperation of national (sectoral) institutions in Egypt and Jordan, in order to achieve nexus synergies and minimize trade-offs. Finally, it provides recommendations for nexus mainstreaming, the building of capacity
and data harmonization.
This report is part 4 of the Project Report "Mainstreaming the Water-Energy-Food Security Nexus into Sectoral Policies and Institutions in the Arab Region".
