Interview with Margaret Catley-Carlson, Chair of the Global Agenda Council on Water Security for the World Economic Forum (WEF)

By using the image of a triangle, Mrs. Catley-Carlson illustrates the increasing interconnections within the water, energy and food security nexus. Moreover, Mrs. Catley-Carlson underscores that any progress of the society based on growth creates new problems which can be jointly solved by international conferences like the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference. In the context of Green Economy Mrs. Catley-Carlson advocates that concepts for water and energy efficiency should be taken more into account, such as the reuse of treated wastewater in buildings or the improved availability of public transport systems in cities.
