Implementation and Case Studies

Nexus in Europe // Practical Planning Management of WEF-Nexus Issues in Germany

The objectives of this study are to identify situations relevant to the water-energy-food Nexus (WEF-Nexus) issue in Germany from available processes, and to describe the implementation and relevant experiences based on three examples with strong Nexus orientations. The study focuses on practical planning and application using suitable instruments. At the core of the study is the consideration of experiences gained in the practical application of procedures and instruments in connection with WEF-Nexus issues, and their general transferability to Nexus governance strategies.

The results of the study are expected to serve as a frame of reference in the consulting and advanced training for the GIZ project “Nexus Regional Dialogues”. This study will be complemented by a closely aligned study, developed in parallel, and investigating the framework setting for WEF-Nexus issues in Europe.
