Managing the food, water, and energy nexus for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in South Asia
18 Sep 2015

The nexus approach can enhance understanding of the interconnectedness of the food-water-energy sectors and strengthen coordination among them. But it requires a major shift in the decision-making process towards taking a holistic view and developing institutional mechanisms to coordinate the actions of diverse actors and strengthen complementarities and synergies among the three sectors. A framework is suggested for cross-sectoral coordination and managing the nexus challenges, with a view toward meeting the Sustainable Development Goals in South Asia.
