Integrity Talk 6
Enabling multi-sector partnerships for water resilience: Bringing integrity in the Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems Nexus
A WIN and Bonn Water Network event
Water security, energy security, food security and the health and sustainability of the planet’s ecosystems are deeply connected in the face of increased climate risks. That’s why an approach, like the WEFE Nexus approach, that emphasises these connections for planning and adaptation processes is so relevant.
But it has its challenges. How will it work in practice? How can we develop governance and implementation structures to deliver the nexus approach without adding further complexity and opening up accountability gaps? How can we avoid capture by special interests or maladaptation and instead ensure water resilience?
In this Integrity Talk, we will discuss the practicalities of the WEFE Nexus and the inherent risks of complex cross-sector initiatives where competing interests, unequal power dynamics, and untested governance structures collide. We will then focus on how to build strong foundations for collaboration with integrity.
