SIM4NEXUS will explore the potential benefits of introducing Nexus-compliant practices in achieving the national energy ambitions, taking into account resource efficiency targets and the transition towards a circular economy. Nexus-compliant practices in the energy sector need to integrate with agricultural land management, sustainable water management and climate mitigation and adaptation. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the national water boards and some provinces (e.g. South-Holland and Groningen) are involved.
