The Renewable Energy Desalination Action Group, represented by Guillermo Zaragoza from CIEMAT-PSA, participated in the Workshop for the “EC Position Paper on the WEFE Nexus and SDGs” organised by DG DEVCO and JRC on January 25th and 26th.

The objective of the workshop was to validate and add to a draft report on framing the context for operationalising the Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems (WEFE) Nexus outside the EU for development cooperation support and provide recommendations for future projects and initiatives to be disseminated in a Position Paper.

The main activity from the Action Group in the workshop was to present their contribution on “Prospects of Desalination using Solar Energy in the MENA Region”, as well as to participate in the discussions on Sustainable Technological Approaches and Solutions, Data, Tools and Models for assessing the Nexus, and Governance, Finance, Institutions and Cooperation Frameworks. The position paper will be released in the summer of 2018.
