Biodiversity is one of the frequent victims of unsustainable water and agricultural policies and practices that can add stress or even severely harm aquatic and other natural ecosystems. The necessary comprehensive policies and strategies require an integrated approach that can be offered by the so called ‘nexus’ of water-energy-food-ecosystems. The ‘nexus’ approach, though introduced some decade ago, has been re-introduced relatively recently and has received momentum. It focuses mostly on the mutual interdependencies of water, energy and food, with the latter two sectors understanding the nexus mostly on the demand side to meet their needs. The Global Water Partnership – Mediterranean (GWP-Med) and the Mediterranean Information Office for Environment, Culture and Sustainable Development (MIO-ECSDE) have insisted at international fora for the full consideration and inclusion of ecosystems, and thus of biodiversity, in the ‘nexus’ with an equal weight as the other sectors/components. In the side event, these links will be further explained, substantiated and debated, while optimal coordination options among the ‘nexus’ sectors will be explored at local, country, transboundary and regional (e.g. Mediterranean) levels. Related cross-cutting challenges, for example on required governance and needed financing, as well as opportunities, like on employability out of application of ‘nexus’ approaches, while contributing to gender equality and youth engagement objectives, will be part of the discussion.
