Based on a detailed review of policy announcements and plans, this report reflects the way that governments, individually or collectively, see their energy sectors developing over the coming decades in regards to the water-energy nexus. Its starting point is the policies and measures that are already in place, but it also takes into account, in full or in part, the aims, targets and intentions that have been announced, even if these have yet to be enshrined in legislation or the means for their implementation are still taking shape.
