What’s the NEXUS?

Bonn2011 Nexus Conference

Hot Topic Sessions

Hot Topic Sessions were designed to allow in-depth discussion of specific “hot” or “burning” issues – issues that either involve significant trade-offs or bear a high potential for synergies. They focussed on how the respective issue relates to water, energy and food security and play a key role in the overall conference debate and outcomes. In the Hot Topic Sessions, participants were be briefly introduced to the issues involved and the positions in current discussions. Together with the speakers and panelists, participants considered concrete challenges and possible solutions which, ideally, can be formulated as initial recommendations to be fed into the overall Bonn2011 Nexus Conference Recommendations.
