Session at the World Water Week 2017 // Experience different perspectives on the urban water-energy nexus!

Use your inspiration from the conference and share your ideas in this interactive session! The urban water-energy nexus poses unique challenges to infrastructures, behavioural patterns and institutional frameworks. However, the interlinkages among the sectors also open great potential for sustainable urban development. To fulfil this potential an inter- and transdisciplinary approach is needed.

Session at the World Water Week 2017 // Water in the circular economy: opportunities and challenges

The circular economy paradigm requires that the value of water and associated wastes are addressed which will, in turn, drive innovation in public policy, financing, business models and technology. This “one water” paradigm will proactively create value for both the private and public sectors in low, middle and high income economies and contribute to achieving the SDGs, in particular the targets for water (SDG 6.3) and sustainable production (SDG 12.5).

Nexus Seminar // Multi-Scale Assessment and Land-Use Dependent Valuation of Hydrologic Ecosystem Services

Understanding the impacts of land-cover / land-use change (LCLUC) on the provision of hydrologic ecosystem services (HES) is key for effective watershed management. However, this understanding is hampered by multiple factors: including the difficulty of making assessments across varying temporal and spatial scales, by multiple sources of uncertainty inherent in the analysis (e.g., data input, model structures / parameters), and by the multidisciplinary nature of making an end-to-end assessment...
