National Guidelines. Mainstreaming the Water-Energy-Food Security Nexus
Lead Author: H.Hoff et al.


The National Guidelines are part of a series of studies and policy guides prepared within the GIZ ACCWaM project “Mainstreaming the Water-Energy-Food Security (WEF) Nexus into Policies and Institutions in the MENA Region”. The report builds upon the most critical interlinkages, as identified in the WEF Nexus Evidence Base and is complemented by a Regional Policy Guide. This report summarizes the situation for Egypt and Jordan in terms of water, energy, and land resources, as well as their related human securities, their critical interlinkages, trade-offs and their synergies, as identified in the Nexus Evidence Base2. It maps key institutions and policies in each of these two countries to those critical interlinkages. Based on that, the report identifies institutional entry points (processes and partners) for increased coordination and cooperation of national (sectoral) institutions in Egypt and Jordan, in order to achieve nexus synergies and minimize trade-offs. Finally, it provides recommendations for nexus mainstreaming, the building of capacity and data harmonization.

About Riccar


The central aim of this Regional Knowledge Hub is to provide access to information that can facilitate cooperation, coordination, dialogue and exchange among Arab States, organizations and stakeholder and to support awareness raising as well as regional networking and exchange on issues related to climate change and water resources in the region. Access to RICCAR assessment findings and associated datasets is being made available on this Regional Knowledge Hub, which is comprised of two open-access components: a website and a data portal. This online platform complements, and builds upon, the findings and processes already presented in the main report and its technical annex, as well as the series of publications that elaborate further on the work being pursued collectively under RICCAR.
