Water-Energy Nexus Operational Toolkit Renewable Energy Module
Lead Author: ESCWA

Description

This module was prepared as part of the United Nations Development Account project on developing the capacity of ESCWA Member Countries to address the water and energy nexus for achieving Sustainable Development Goals. It highlights the utilization of renewable energy (RE) to strengthen the water and energy nexus by providing the power needed by water-related activities such as water distribution and wastewater treatment. RE technologies can also strengthen energy security and diversify national energy mix by providing alternative sources that are less water intensive, availing modern energy services and reducing the dependence on fossil fuel, which contributes to the mitigation of greenhouse gases emissions. These benefits are significant for the Arab countries to meet their growing demand on water and energy and achieve their sustainable development plans.

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.
