October 2021

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are interlinked to, and benefit from, increased synergies in their deployment. Energy is critical for assuring quality of life and underpins the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda). Achieving the SDGs will require coordination between sectors, coherent policies and integrated planning.

The nexus approach provides an opportunity to strengthen actions aimed at achieving the SDGs in the Arab region. This brochure highlights the importance of the water-energy-food nexus in integrating the security, accessibility and affordability of essential resources and underpins the sustainable management of resources within the 2030 Agenda framework.
