About the WEF Nexus Webinar Series

The water-energy-food (WEF) Nexus is a useful framework for addressing complex transdisciplinary natural resource and environmental challenges in integrated, innovative ways. This webinar series explores using and operationalizing WEF Nexus approaches for finding solutions to these challenges. The series focuses on examples and solutions by linking and using WEF Nexus approaches to timely interventions, technologies and issues of importance, especially in the context of COVID-19 and climate change.

About Session 4

In rural areas around the globe access to finance is a prerequisite for the sustainable development of end-users (e.g. smallholder farmers and agri-food SMEs). Without access to finance, end-users of the water-energy-food nexus face extreme hardships to grow their businesses or increase their income! But who are the end-users in the WEF nexus? What are their needs and challenges in accessing finance? And what new, innovative financial models exist to enable end-users to grow their businesses or increase their income? This webinar provides answers while it aims to share knowledge, raise awareness, and advance the discussion on how to close the end-user financing gap in the WEF nexus – with special focus on the West Africa Region.

This session will be presented by:

  • Kay Grulich, GIZ/WE4F (Germany)
  • Marlène Amegankpoe, SCS International (Mali)
  • Bastian Domke, GIZ (Germany)
  • Joëlle Duff, Cordaid Investment Management B.V. (The Netherland)

It will be moderated by the African Foresight Group (Ghana).
