Short Film // The Nexus in a nutshell

International experts comment on the main topics of the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference

What is the Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus and what does the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference stand for? In this short film, members of the International Steering Committee (ISC) provide an overview on the complex challenges within the Nexus covering important issues such as the overuse and distribution of natural resources on a global level. Moreover, the experts state their expectations towards the outcomes of the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference and underscore that the nexus perspective of the conference is crucial for the international Green Economy debate. Due to the fact that the international experts of the ISC are representatives from the spheres of science, politics, civil society and private sector, the various topics of the conference are being addressed from a number of angles.
