The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Nexus Dialogue Project “Fostering Water, Energy and Food (WEF) Security Nexus Dialogue and Multi-Sector Investment in the SADC Region” is a project supported by the European Commission as part of the global ‘Nexus Regional Dialogues Programme’. 

The overall objective of the dialogue project is to support the transformation required to meet increasing water, energy and food security demands in a context of climate change in the SADC Region through the development of an integrated Nexus approach. The specific objective of the project is to create an enabling environment that will drive cross-sectoral engagement, coordination and implementation of Nexus investment projects that contribute to enhancing water, energy and food security in the SADC Region. 

The Project began in 2017 and has been implemented in two phases. Phase I of the Nexus Dialogues Programme ran from 2017-2019 and aimed at helping Regional organisations and their Member States apply a Nexus approach in the formulation of multi-sector policy recommendations, strategies, action plans and investment programmes. Phase I also aimed to identifying concrete investment projects – with a focus on multi-purpose water infrastructure.
