I wanted to ask us to take a step back for a moment.
We know that the global impacts of population change, economics prosperity in emerging economies and an increasing urban world combined with climate change will mean by 2030:
• Increased energy demand by 30-40%;
• Increased demand for food: agriculture production to increase by 30-50%
• Demand for water will exceed global availability by 40% by 2030
The Nexus approach asks us to look at the inter-linkages between these three critical areas.
Gary embrace complexity — not only the three dimensions but across sectors.
So it isn’t just the interconnectivity between the three dimensions of sustainable development but the inter-linkages between major sectors.
We need wins across sectors as well as in sectors – only one development agenda is going to be able to address all of this
