Review on the 3rd NEXOGENESIS workshop

On the 15th of June, we organized the third NEXOGENESIS stakeholders workshop on “Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem Governance, Policy, and Stakeholder Engagement in the Lielupe River Basin” in Vilnius.

During this, we took a retrospective look at the progress made in studying and assessing the current situation of the Lielupe River Basin. Together with our project partners presented the main findings on water-energy-food-ecosystem governance and policy coherence in both Latvia and Lithuania.

In the second part of the meeting, we unveiled the main policy packages and engaged in an interactive workshop to identify the most suitable policy instrument options for stakeholders. Additionally, we had in-depth discussions on stakeholder engagement considerations. Furthermore, we provided a platform for stakeholder representatives to showcase their projects and initiatives related to water-energy-food-ecosystem interactions in the Lielupe River Basin.
