Strategy for Interlinkages between Water, Energy and Agriculture (Nexus Perspective) // Synergies and Conflicting Goals

Global forecasts predict a 40 to 50 per cent increase in the demand for fresh water, energy and food until 2030 due to pressure caused by population growth, economic growth, international trade, urbanisation, changes in eating habits, climate change and technological advances. The objective is to adopt an integrated approach for the three sectors water, energy and agriculture (Nexus perspective), with a view to reconciling their interests as they compete for the same scarce resources and resolving conflicts while respecting planetary boundaries. In this paper, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) lays out its strategy to achieve this integrated resource vision.
