Cooperation across borders and sectors: Regional experiences of WEF Nexus institutionalization and governance

October 19, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The second session of the 2nd Round of Webinar on Water-Energy-Food Nexus SOLUTIONS focuses on NEXUS governance. This session will give insights into the successful mainstreaming of the water, energy and food security Nexus approach into governance structures. It will present different approaches for WEF Nexus transboundary cooperation and governance from three different regions: Southern Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and the Niger Basin.

Key questions that will be addressed are:
– What are the necessary steps to establish and endorse a Nexus governance framework/ structure?
– How can the benefits of the WEF Nexus approach initiate or intensify transboundary cooperation?
– What are the lessons learnt?

Registration is required.
