Advanced WEF Nexus Training at Municipal Level in Tunisia

Dec 29, 2022

The Royal Scientific Society / National Energy Research Centre conducted a 3-days training on Water, Energy Food Nexus in Tunisia in partnership with the municipalities of Manouba and Raoued from 27-29 December 2022.

The training aims to capacitate the project municipalities to apply Water-Food-Energy Nexus approach as an important framework for promoting a coherent, holistic and integrated implementation of the related Sustainable Development Goals, and secure access to the three critical resources in the long run.

The training highlighted the importance of:

  • Understanding the synergies and trade-offs between competing uses of water, land and energy related resources.
  • Embracing a cross-sectoral, coherent and integrated perspective.
  • Promoting the integration of goals across sectors and reducing the risk of sector-specific SDG actions undermining each other.
  • Leveraging the local capacities and technical knowledge on how to implement efficient and sustainable climatic actions.

Over a set of sessions, the participants were exposed to the principle of WEF-NEXUS and its reflections in the Mediterranean region, and created a common understanding of challenges and potential opportunities in applying WEF Nexus technical solutions at their municipal level.

MINARET II is financed by the Nexus Regional Dialogues Programme, which is implemented by the German International Cooperation (GIZ) on behalf of the European Union and the German Government.
