Policy and Research Papers

The urban nexus is a guiding principle that provides an approach to close resource gaps and achieve multiple goals. Through adoption of innovative technologies and coherent policies, the urban nexus approach helps cities meet targets and commitments set forth in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the New Urban Agenda, and the Paris Agreement. Since 2013, the Integrated Resource Management in Asian Cities: the Urban Nexus project has supported the development of many resources including policy briefs, policy analysis, analytical reports, and research papers. These and other relevant documents on urban nexus can be found at the links below. Please see the Participating Cities pages for city-specific flyers, case studies, feasibility studies, and other reports.
