ECLAC publication about water-food-energy nexus in Costa Rica

The Reventazón river basin in Costa Rica, is the largest generator of electricity in the country. It is also important for irrigation and drinking water supply.
The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) now launch a publication about the water-food-energy nexus in the basin. The study identifies several problems, where governance is one of the most significant.

The study also shows the need to break away from the sectoral visions and create common efforts in the management of natural resources, as it enables progress towards greater sectoral balance.
