AMMAN — The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations in Jordan has convened a two-day workshop titled “Second Nexus Dialogue: Hands-on nexus analysis in Jordan” under the project “Implementing the 2030 Agenda for Water Efficiency/Productivity and Water Sustainability in Near East and North Africa countries”, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.

The workshop, held in collaboration with the Ministry of Water and Irrigation in Jordan, the Stockholm Environment Institute and the Royal Institute of Technology, gathered a group of experts, resource managers, policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the results and the model developed based on the first “Nexus Dialogue” held in Amman last March, according to an FAO statement.

The main goal of this workshop, as part of the nexus process, is to present preliminary nexus model results that illustrate the tradeoffs and potential synergies in developing policies and infrastructure to increase the overall water-energy-food security in Jordan.
