The Growth Engine for Africa— From a Water Perspective

Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Boston

As we peer into the future, there are a number of development challenges that require an exploration of the interconnections among water, energy, and food.  Countries still struggling with provision of basic services and that have not yet adapted well to historical climate variability face the additional challenges of growing needs and climate change.  Several regions in the world are facing unprecedented challenges in frequent and severe drought, water security, high energy production costs, food security and evolving climate conditions to countries of high and low GDP alike.  These changes are not merely limited to the biophysical ecosystems, but also socio-economic systems in complex ways.  This has real impact on local and regional economic value added and at a larger scale on the country’s GDP.  These different aspects are converging within the Nexus of Water-Energy-Food. The application of these approaches to address the Nexus manifest itself through three sectoral approaches: water resources, energy production and agriculture development.
