Brussels Briefing 56: “The Land-water-energy nexus and the sustainability of the food system”

Brussels Briefing 56: “The Land-water-energy nexus and the sustainability of the food system”

Aperçu de l'événement

The Brussels Briefing 56 discusses the Land-Water-Energy nexus and its implications for the food system, with a focus on ACP countries. 

Delivering water, energy and food for all in a sustainable and equitable way is a major challenge faced by many countries. The interactions between water, energy and food in a nexus approach are crucial for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and key to fight poverty, protect the environment and ensure a sustainable agricultural growth.

Les organisateurs

  • CTA

    Le Centre technique de coopération agricole et rurale (CTA) est une institution internationale conjointe des États du Groupe ACP (Afrique, Caraïbes, Pacifique) et de l’Union européenne (UE). Il intervient dans les pays ACP pour améliorer la sécurité alimentaire, la résilience et la croissance économique à travers des innovations durables dans le domaine agricole. Le CTA opère dans le cadre de l’Accord de Cotonou et est financé par l’UE.

  • DG DEVCO

    The Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) is responsible for designing European international cooperation and development policy and delivering aid throughout the world. DG DEVCO is in charge of development cooperation policy in a wider framework of international cooperation, adapting to the evolving needs of partner countries. This encompasses cooperation with developing countries at different stages of development, including with countries graduated from bilateral development assistance to cover the specific needs of these countries during the transition period between low-income countries and upper middle-income countries. DG DEVCO works closely with other Commission services responsible for thematic policies, as well as with the European External Action Service and Commission services on external action, so as to facilitate and help ensure a consistent approach.

  • ACP

    The African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) is an organisation created by the Georgetown Agreement in 1975. It is composed of 79 African, Caribbean and Pacific states, with all of them, save Cuba, signatories to the Cotonou Agreement, also known as the "ACP-EC Partnership Agreement" which binds them to the European Union. There are 48 countries from Sub-Saharan Africa, 16 from the Caribbean and 15 from the Pacific. The Secretariat is responsible for the administrative management of the ACP Group. It assists the Group's decision-making and advisory organs in carrying out their work. The ACP Secretariat's headquarters is located in Brussels (Belgium). It is headed by an Executive Secretary-General who is responsible for implementing the Group's international policy, as well as directing and coordinating its cooperation policy.

  • CONCORD

    CONCORD is the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs. We are made up of member organisations: 28 national associations, 20 international networks and 3 associate members that represent over 2,600 NGOs, supported by millions of citizens across Europe. CONCORD is the main interlocutor with the EU institutions on development policy.
