WEF Nexus, Water Productivity, and Water Accounting


WEF Nexus, Water Productivity, and Water Accounting

16 February 2021

3:30–5:00 p.m. (GMT +8), Tuesday, Zoom

The water-food-energy (WEF) nexus and water accounting approaches are considered as two powerful tools that can maximize production derived from water use across sectors. This webinar will show the practical promise of implementing the nexus while also explaining how nexus benefits can be (i) better understood through water accounting, and (ii) realized through integrated basin approaches based on multi-stakeholder platforms.

The first presentation will outline how improving water use efficiency can reduce energy use in the irrigated agriculture sector of Uzbekistan. The second presentation will outline how water accounting approaches could enhance multisectoral benefits. A final presentation will provide an example of integrated water resources management (IWRM) -oriented processes utilized to engage stakeholders in allocation and management decisions. The webinar will conclude with a discussion on opportunities to package WEF interventions with water accounting and IWRM processes that can lead to water productivity and increase sustainability.
