Subject headingsBlue diplomacy action ; Policy measures ; Mediterranean and Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region
Given the cross-cutting nature of water, and the fact that water scarcity is a global problem, a common and comprehensive approach on a global scale is needed. Therefore, the EESC calls for the Nexus approach to be widely implemented and the experiences and best practices of Member States, businesses, civil society organisations and local communities need to be fully considered in the development and implementation of blue diplomacy.
