Dear Blue Blue,

Why is the food-water-energy nexus not higher up the agenda is the question we are asking this week. At our recent West African Nexus Workshop in Senegal, there was common agreement that this should be one of the key strategies for sustainable rural development. You can see this in the links included to stories written by the journalists from all over the region that attended. Yet from the SDGs themselves to individual country policies we still see fragmented approaches. Or claims that one element is more important than another. The Stockholm International Water Week which just closed is a case in point - of the near 100 sessions, only one was dedicated to Nexus. Fortunately it seems that many of those on the frontline seem to be taking matters into their own hands - at the workshop we learnt of various examples of small holder farmers, social enterprises and other stakeholders taking advantage of renewable solar or hydro energy to introduce for example drip irrigation and then process food. This bottom-up approach now needs some more top-down understanding.
