NEXUS Calendar

06–09 Aug 14


The camp is targeting 10-15 year olds. The camp theme is tied to the UN’s World Water Day 2014. Organised by Greyfos Consulting Nairobi, Kenya.

The organisers want the kids to understand symbiotic relationship. For example: How water is used to generate energy? How energy in turn is used to convey the water to the users? How generation can lead to water stress? How to ensure everyone has the water and energy they need? How to supply water and energy while safeguarding the planet? How to reduce water & energy consumption at home?

31 Aug–05 Sep 14

Water-Energy Nexus

In addressing the water-energy nexus, the World Water Week 2014 in Stockholm will attempt to take an overall “systems view” of how to develop and manage energy and water for the good of society and ecosystems - at local, national, regional and global levels - and avoid unintended consequences of narrow sectoral approaches. The “water, energy and food security nexus”, underpinning the green growth approach, will be central to the agenda.

08–09 Sep 14


Intersectoral approaches as well as transboundary search for solutions on the nexus approach will be discussed on a meeting organized by UNECE in September 2014. This is a follow up meeting to an initial meeting in April 2013
