Nexus Region Southern Africa — SADC

The Southern African region represents a wide range of resource and climate contexts with varied supplies of water, food and energy. Each of the fifteen member states of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) has a distinct developmental imperative. Integrated planning of water, food and energy sectors and promoting regional cooperation has been considered as a strategy to meet water, energy and food security targets, and to improve natural resource use efficiencies in the region.
