    Abstract International cooperation constitutes an important means of strengthening nexus understanding and provides the framework for applying nexus principles in practice. Development history shows that a more holistic approach taking account of economic, social, and environmental concerns is necessary for sustainable development. Both the nexus approach to the management of environmental resources and the role of international cooperation are assessed for their mutual benefits. It is argued that holistic assessments of interlinkages and trade‐offs between sectors (water, energy, agriculture) and resources (water, soil, waste, ecosystems) provide a platform for increased international and multi‐stakeholder cooperation. Similarly, a review of case studies shows that regional and international cooperation promotes mutual learning, dialogue, and data and knowledge sharing, which in turn advances the implementation and operationalization of the nexus approach.
