The Mediterranean Hotspot
In the Mediterranean, the situation is more alarming. According to Antonella Autino, Program Coordinator of PRIMA, “the Mediterranean is considered a hotspot for global warming, deteriorating ecosystems and inefficient use of scarce resources. In the context of population growth, economic development and current climate change effects, ecosystems are deteriorating, and the management of our water, food and energy systems is becoming more and more complex”.
Therefore, it is impossible to achieve sustainable development and social stability by dealing with water, energy, food and ecosystems as separate resources. A holistic, integrated and transversal approach represented by WEFE Nexus is vital to respond to the challenges of the Mediterranean.
“Successful implementation of WEFE Nexus solutions in Mediterranean countries is the only solution to effectively alleviate the situation and pave the way for the green economy and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals“, affirms Autino.
