In recent years, the Energy-Water-Environment (EWE) nexus has become increasingly important for Qatar. These three areas are closely linked to one another and the progress or challenges in one area can have a profound impact on the other two areas. Therefore, while it is encouraging that serious efforts are being made on  the national level, it is imperative that these efforts are concerted  to bring together all the stakeholders involved in this EWE nexus to ensure that these three areas  develop together.
