The Nexus approach aims to analyse the linkages between the water, energy and food sectors and especially the trade-offs (developing one sector at the expense of the other) and possible synergies (innovative win-wins) between the sectors. The approach was applied in Humera woreda in western Tigray in August 2017 to provide insights as to how a nexus approach could work, how possible nexus solutions could be integrated into government programmes and business strategies, and how a contribution could be made to sustainable development of the economy of Humera woreda. The focus of the case study in Humera was the emerging development of a large-scale Agro-industrial Park and its role in potentially boosting sesame production in the area.
