Anniversary

On occasion of its 10th anniversary, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) Asia Centre has invited prominent policy-makers and researchers from across the Asia-Pacific region to celebrate, look back on its achievements to date, and share ideas and perspectives on the Centre’s current and future work.

16–18 Nov 14

Conference Session

Imagine H2O will run a session on the water-energy nexus at the Intelligent Efficiency Conference “Mainstreaming Intelligent Efficiency”, organised by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE).

13–15 Nov 14

International Conference

A conference for optimising infrastructure and technology to build partnerships for water, energy and food security. Conference themes are: using the nexus to accelerate development; cleantech nexus infrastructure and technology solutions; collaboration and institutional arrangements for a nexus approach; influencing pathways of investment for nexus infrastructure and technology. The Symposium will produce a set of recommendations, which will establish policy principles for sustainable water infrastructure operation, management and optimization in the nexus.

Summit

The world has woken up to the dangerous consequences of the looming water crisis. Demand is rising rapidly thanks to industrialization, population growth, climate change and the planet’s growing need for food, yet nature has decreed that supply is fixed. With agriculture, homes, factories and offices consuming water in ever greater quantities, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that by 2030, nearly half the world’s population could face a scarcity of water, with demand outstripping supply by 40%. As water plays a crucial role in all segments of nature, society and economy, access to water will become a fundamental issue to individuals, governments, companies and ecosystems.

29–31 Oct 14

Conference

The Lyon Conference aims to be a transition from the 6th World Water Forum in Marseille (France) in 2012 to the next one, the seventh edition of the World Water Forum, in Daegu (South Korea) in 2015.

29 Oct 14

Conference

The dynamic transformation of the global oil and gas sectors continues to present unprecedented opportunities - and significant challenges. Within its lifetime, an unconventional well may use up to 13 million gallons of water and, while this was once a drop in the ocean in comparison to North America’s abundant freshwater sources, today, it’s crippling.

27–30 Oct 14

Conference

Interconnected technologies for energy, buildings and transportation enable radical efficiencies and huge opportunities. One of the tracks of the conference deals with Food and Water Systems: new production and delivery systems leading to innovative products and services that address supply-chain risk and resilience. Organised by VERGE San Francisco

23–24 Oct 14

Conference

The American Water Summit, now in its 5th year, is the only event in the water calendar that focuses entirely on the business of water in North America. The Summit brings together 400 top executives and thought leaders from the public and private sectors in a format that is geared toward maximum networking return as well as the discussion of cutting-edge ideas.
