La Platforme Eau, Energie et Sécurité Alimentaire est une plateforme indépendante d'information et de facilitation développée dans le cadre du programme mondial "Dialogues régionaux Nexus", mis en œuvre par la Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH et financé conjointement par le Ministère Fédéral de la Coopération Economique et du Développement (BMZ) et l'Union Européenne (UE).

Nous travaillons à l'intégration du dialogue Nexus sur l'eau, l'énergie et la sécurité alimentaire dans les dialogues politiques régionaux de haut niveau, les décisions d'investissement et dans la politique de développement mondial.

Notre programme met en œuvre les Dialogues Régionaux Nexus, qui aident les acteurs régionaux à rendre opérationnel le concept Nexus dans les recommandations politiques et les projets pilotes.

Histoire
2010

L'approche Nexus a été mise en avant dans l'agenda international après avoir été promue pour la première fois lors d'événements internationaux d'élaboration des politiques en 2010.

2011

La Conférence Nexus Bonn 2011 organisée par le gouvernement allemand a présenté des preuves sur la façon dont une approche Nexus peut améliorer la sécurité de l'eau, de l'énergie et alimentaire en augmentant l'efficacité, en réduisant les compromis et en créant des synergies tout en améliorant la gouvernance dans les différents secteurs.

2014

À partir de 2014, la GIZ, au nom du Ministère Fédéral de la Coopération Economique et du Développement (BMZ), a commencé à mettre en œuvre les activités du programme « Dialogues Régionaux Nexus ».

2016 — 2020

La phase I du programme est le résultat d'efforts internationaux visant à rendre l'approche Nexus opérationnelle. Le programme a été financé conjointement par l'Union Européenne et le BMZ. Il est conçu pour stimuler les cinq Dialogues Régionaux Nexus (NRD) impliquant diverses parties prenantes, y compris les décideurs politiques nationaux et régionaux, le secteur privé, le monde universitaire et la société civile.

2020 — 2023

Les principaux objectifs de la deuxième phase sont les suivants:

  • institutionnaliser l'approche Nexus dans les structures de gouvernance nationales et régionales et les décisions d'investissement dans les Régions
  • présenter la valeur ajoutée du Nexus avec des projets de démonstration dans les régions
  • promouvoir l'échange et la diffusion d'informations par le biais du ‘Centre de Connaissances’
