Dear reader,

Welcome back to another issue of the Nexus newsletter!

Mainstreaming the Water-Energy-Food Nexus approach is no small feat, it challenges existing structures, policies and procedures at global, regional and national levels. Trainings, policy dialogues and awareness raising are just some of the key activities the Nexus team has been busy with these past two months.

This edition proudly highlights the successful closing of the Lake Kivu and Ruzizi River Project. Ongoing since January 2019, the EU and BMZ funded project aimed to support the river basin organization ABAKIR to improve the hydrological and operational management of Lake Kivu and the Ruzizi/Rusizi River.

Moreover, the Nexus Regional Dialogues (NRD) team took part in the Global Climate Fund (GCF) workshop “Water, Energy, Food, Ecosystems (WEFE) Nexus bankability: Integrity readiness to improve cross-sector performance and attract investment”. In addition to this, the Global Nexus Secretariat talked to the leaders of tomorrow, offering input at a university excursion, highlighting the necessity of WEF Nexus thinking. In-keeping with academia, the NRD aims to support the integration of the Nexus approach in educational curricula. Furthermore, all five regions continue to raise awareness of the Nexus through policy dialogues and workshops and participation in high-level events such as the upcoming COP27 to be held in Sharm El-Scheikh, Egypt in November 2022. Concurrently, the Frexus project will be attending the Paris Peace Forum, with a focus on cooperation through conflicts.

As per our last edition, we have continued our Nexus Interview Series, this time you will get to know Eleonora Hoffmann, Hannah Mosleh and Jakob Seidler, and read about their perspectives on WEF challenges and opportunities.

These are only some of the highlights of the last few months, so have a closer look at our feature to learn more!

Happy reading!

Your Nexus Team
