In this video interview, Mr. Banuri compares the functional interaction between different systems within the human body to the complex interconnections in the water, energy and food security nexus. In this context Mr. Banuri illustrates the far-reaching consequences of energy shortages in sub-Saharan Africa in terms of health effects and infant mortality. In view of the upcoming earth summit for sustainable development (Rio+20), Mr. Banuri expects a substantial political statement comparable with the United Nations Millennium Declaration. In addition, he is convinced that the outputs and recommendations of the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference, which will be developed by a large multi-stakeholder effort, will form a vital contribution to Rio+20.
//The video-interview was produced on the second meeting of the International Steering Committee (ISC) from 30 to 31 of March 2011 in Bonn.
