The Nexus in the Arab Region Policy Brief // Nexus Capacity Development Needs

The WEF Nexus in the Arab Region Series is published by the League of Arab States (LAS), with technical and financial support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). This policy brief is specifically looking at capacity development needs for the Nexus in the Arab region.

In order to achieve reliable water, energy and food supplies at a national and global scale, multi-stakeholder platforms are needed in order to develop and explore science-policy-society linkages and opportunities to share knowledge and employ it to meet the targets for both the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Change obligations. Understanding these complex linkages and translating this into solutions requires increased nexus system thinking and problem solving competence. These platforms can only be created by building capacity at different levels, including institutional, academic (knowledge) and outreach.
