Managing the water-land-energy nexus for sustainable development

Other

Written by Dirk Willem te Velde

This article explores the pressures on natural resources in a land shaped by climate change and growing demand for goods and services, such as food and energy. The article argues that the priority must be to address current water, energy, and food insecurity in particular, of the world’s poorest, to provide a healthy diet, safe water, and access to modern energy for all, going beyond the Millennium Development Goals. However, this goal should not only be pursued at the household level, but also at the industrial development level to enable economic development for all countries.
