About this book

This book explores how integrated management of environmental resources via a nexus approach can help in achieving the respective Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It provides conceptual considerations but mainly practical examples on how to implement a nexus approach in cities and multifunctional land-use systems to increase resource use efficiency and develop a low carbon economy.

After sketching out the background and conceptual outline, contributions to the book explore key aspects of the nexus implementation. Specifically, they

•             Demonstrate how to sustainably use organic waste and wastewater for agriculture,

•             Explore examples on how to manage multifunctional land-use systems including multipurpose reservoirs,

•             Highlight the importance of economic incentives for successful nexus implementation, and

•             Provide a comprehensive perspective on challenges and opportunities of implementation, considering peer-to-peer learning, indigenous knowledge, and stakeholder participation.

The chapters in this book shed a new light on key aspects of the interrelation between SDGs and the nexus approach in resilient cities and multifunctional land-use systems, and provide specific examples on how to advance sustainable resources management.
