This sixth issue of the ESCWA Water Development Report offers an analytical framework and a series of case studies for understanding the water-energy-food security nexus in the Arab region. The analytical framework considers the inter-linkages that affect the achievement of water security, energy security and food security through the lens of sustainable development and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals with a view to climate change and ensuring access to food, water and sustainable energy for all through a human rights approach to sustainable development.




Over the last few years, the links between the water, energy and food sectors have been examined under the water-energy-food (WEF) security nexus. In their pursuit of sustainable development, Arab States have much to gain from a WEF nexus approach; however, it will require integrated thinking if WEF security is to be achieved at all levels across the Arab region.
