Nexus Assessment // Study on the Synergies of the Water, Energy and Food Sectors in Sudan

This report presents the main findings of the Nexus assessment study for Sudan. It identified Water-Energy-Food Nexus priority issues in Sudan, suggested operational guidance to align national strategies, policies and implementation plans within a national Nexus framework, identified opportunities to apply the Nexus approach, including institutional settings and capacity building needs, and suggested a series of Water-Energy-Food Nexus projects in Sudan.

Based on the interest expressed by the Sudanese Ministry of Water Resources, Electricity and Irrigation, the Nexus Regional Dialogue in the MENA Region  took the initiative to develop a Nexus Assessment Study for Sudan in collaboration with the Arab Organization for Agricultural Development (AOAD). The study was carried out by Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the University of Khartoum in Sudan. The views of different experts and stakeholders were taken into consideration in this study, through organizing a national dialogue on WEF Nexus in Sudan as well as a validation workshop, where the main findings and recommendations of the study were presented and discussed.
