The UAE, Jordan and the Netherlands call for a Water, Energy and Food Nexus approach
By 2050, the global population is set to increase to almost 10 billion, while 70 percent of people are expected to be living in cities. Already large swathes of the world’s population face water stress, food scarcity and energy poverty. Accelerated population growth combined with rapid urbanisation is also putting unprecedented pressure on water, energy and food. These precious resources are critical for human health, food security and livelihoods of people across the globe. What we do now will impact the survival of our own and future generations.
