Concerned Mediterranean stakeholders need to be aware of the main obstacles to their water resilience. Their capabilities should be developed, and ultimately, they should be provided with suitable "nexus solutions". With this knowledge, the Center for Migration Integration (CMI)-led water security nexus project examined water security in an interdependent world and was funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO). This project helped to strengthen knowledge of cross-sectoral linkages (food, water, environmental, migratory, demographic, etc.) in North African countries and their effects on human mobility. Avoiding a reductionist explanation of the connection between climate change, water scarcity, and migration was a primary focus throughout this effort.
This CMI flagship report serves two distinct purposes. First, it aims to emphasize the most important conclusions and outcomes from the many outputs that CMI and its partners provided for this project in a succinct and consolidated manner. It builds on the findings and offers policy recommendations and directions to increase policy coherence on the water security nexus, regional water cooperation, and the creation of additional youth-led initiatives.
The report was produced in the context of the CMI-led program on “Water Security Nexus in North Africa: Catalyzing Regional Coordination Around Climate Change, Resilience and Migration”, funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO).
