Among the diverse sessions on offer at World Water Week in Stockholm, I've noticed a thread of common thinking: nexus thinking. The water-food-energy nexus, which places ecosystems and their services to people at its very heart, isn't just an abstract theory - it really is being applied to the way the water community is tackling the issues. Such alignment and the debates it generates have been a long time coming, and it's certainly exciting to be in the middle of it.
Personally, I think the nexus is a really useful way to apply an integrative cross sector approach to water security. Focusing on the nexus makes it easier for us to make integrated water resource management operational, and the discussions at World Water Week reflect this.
