Guidelines for integrity in WEFE nexus initiatives

Practical guidelines on how best to strengthen four governance areas of WEFE Nexus initiatives: Institutions, Information, Investment, and Implementation

WHEN TO USE IT

  • When formalising a partnership for WEFE Nexus, to strengthen governance, accountability, and trust between partners.

  • When planning WEFE nexus initiative activities with partners


HOW IT WORKS

Climate change, population growth, and economic development are straining needs for fresh water, food, and energy. An integrated approach is essential to manage resources sustainably and secure healthy ecosystems. The Water Energy Food Ecosystems (WEFE) Nexus is a decision-making framework recognising interlinkages between sectors and aiming to maximise synergies while balancing trade-offs, for a more sustainable future.


Integrity is crucial for the successful implementation of WEFE Nexus programmes and initiatives. Transparency, accountability, participation, and anti-corruption measures provides a path to ensure equitable access to scarce resources, balance competing interests, manage trade-offs, and ensure resources are allocated in the public's interest.


These guidelines share recommendations on how best to work towards integrity in four goverance areas:


🏦 institutions - for balanced, accountable decisions;

ℹ️ information - for open data sharing and strong capacity;

💲 investment - for safeguarding finances sustainably;

✔️ implementation - for participatory planning, and clear processes for control, monitoring, and reporting.


HOW IT WAS DEVELOPED

These guidelines were developed with support from GIZ.
