We are back! While we are almost halfway into the year, the last months have been filled with exciting accomplishments for the Nexus Regional Dialogues (NRD) programme. It has been busy, and we are happy to share that we have transitioned from the planning phase to implementation mode with core activities to mainstream the Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus approach.
A clear milestone reached for the NRD programme is the development of a new WEF Nexus training and its implementation to inspire participants to become “WEF Nexus Ambassadors”. The training material is now available for free – learn where to access and download it in this edition!
We want to show the added value of the WEF Nexus approach in practice and therefore support concrete demonstration projects in different regions – from promoting WEF Nexus based farming practices in Egypt to uplifting livelihoods through solar-powered irrigation in Niger. Read up about recent activities and progress from the ground!
As part of our Nexus interview series, you will get to know Kristine Herbomel, regional coordinator of the project “Support to the Integrated Management of Water Resources of Lake Kivu and the Ruzizi River”.
Before you dive into this latest newsletter edition, we would like to take this opportunity to announce a change within the NRD Newsletter editorial team, our longtime editor Tina Schmiers will sadly be leaving us. While we wish her all the best, we would also like to welcome Cecilia Vey, who will be taking over this role, leading the communications and outreach activities of the Nexus team.
