Tourism, industry and agriculture are the key sectors in the economy. The specific Nexus policy priorities are sustainable water management, renewable/low-carbon energy use and climate change mitigation; sustainable tourism development; water efficiency planning in irrigated agriculture; conservation of ecosystem services and biodiversity through guaranteeing environmental flows. A policy challenge for the implementation of Nexus-compliant practices is to improve policy and development plans that efficiently limit conflicts between water use, while increasing hydropower production for the transition to a low-carbon and climate resilient economy. The Regional Ministry of the Environment, the Regional Water Authority, the Regional Ministry of Tourism, an Electrical Power producer are involved.
