In this video interview Mr. Leape states that today's use of resources by far exceeds our planet's capacity to sustain us. In this context Mr. Leape explains why the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference is of major importance in the view of WWF.
On the one hand, it is the approach addressing the three resources water, energy and food together in order to develop integrated solutions. On the other hand, it is the conference format enabling governments, business and civil society to jointly develop solutions for challenges within the nexus. In addition to that, the Director General of WWF International expects of the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference participants to forge new collaborations and to set up new thinking that can feed into the Rio plus 20 Conference.
