UN ESCWA // The Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus in the Arab Region

Constructing an analytical framework for examining the water-energy-food (WEF) security nexus in the Arab region requires a common vision based on shared principles acceptable to all Arab countries in spite of differences in their natural resource endowments or socioeconomic capital. This can be achieved by promoting a people-centered approach to the nexus grounded in the SDGs.

A people-centered approach to development, guided by human rights principles on access to water, food and development, can provide the basis for a nexus analytical framework in the Arab region, whereby all three main components of the nexus are seen as equally important. This conceptual framework is set out in detail in ESCWA Water Development Report 6: The Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus in the Arab Region (2015) and illustrates how water, energy and food security are linked. It takes a human-rights based approach to development that aims to ensure universal access to basic services for all, as set forth in the SDGs and in the face of challenges posed by climate change.
