Extract

A drop of water, a piece of land, or a kilojoule of renewable energy cannot be seen through the single lens of one sectorial policy or management system. What might appear to be an efficient policy in one dimension can be harmful for others . . . an adequate response to emerging challenges, and specifically the linkages between water, energy and land, make it imperative to examine and manage the trade-offs not only among users and uses of the same resource, but also of other related resources.
