Nexus Blog // The Nexus Regional Dialogues Programme received an award for promoting innovative Nexus solutions
The Nexus Regional Dialogues Programme in Latin America and the Caribbean, together with the ProAgenda 2030 program in Bolivia, was recently awarded EUR 17,000 from an innovation fund of the GIZ-sponsored Environmental Management and Rural Development Network in Latin America and the Caribbean (GADER-ALC) to develop a workstream for promoting innovative solutions using digital tools for sustainable development in the water, energy and agriculture sectors.
The Nexus Regional Dialogues Programme together with its regional partner CEPAL (United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean - ECLAC), will foster intersectoral connections and collaboration linkages among water, energy and food sectors to support the 2030 Sustainable Development Objectives among different GIZ programs and its counterparts. By using virtual platforms, policy makers and implementers will be informed on the WEF Nexus approach and its application in context of the Agenda 2030. In addition, the workstream seeks to showcase concrete experiences that support the 2030 Agenda, to implement an online course on the linkages between Nexus and the SDGs, and an online course regarding monitoring of SDG and climate change (Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs) indicators.
The GADER-ALC network is part of the GIZ Sectoral networks, which promote learning and cooperation in the region by creating new connections and stimulating innovation in the areas of environment, biodiversity, water, energy, agriculture, climate and cities. The regional network facilitates exchange through regional conferences, strategy meetings and task teams, thereby creating value added for the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Directorate General for Development Cooperation of the European Union (DG-DEVCO, EU) and other trusted partner organizations.
