Book Launch at World Water Week 2016 // Safe Use of Wastewater in Agriculture: Good Practice Examples

Wastewater management provides one of the best natural examples to demonstrate the usefulness of the Nexus Approach to managing water, soil, and waste. This book is an attempt to share what UNU-FLORES has learned from looking at examples across the globe on this subject. Seventeen interesting case studies gathered from around the world on wastewater reuse in agriculture are presented in this book.

All cases provide first-hand information as they have been authored by the experts who implemented these cases or monitored the progress of them closely for years. The material is presented in three sections to improve readability. Section I presents five cases covering Technological Advances. Section II is dedicated for Health & Environmental Aspects and presents another five unique cases. With seven cases, Section III of the book provides a useful discussion on Policy & Implementation Issues.

IAMG2019 // 20th Annual Conference of the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences

The conference will cover the usual topics in geo-mathematics, geostatistics, and geomodeling but in particular will bring to fore geomodeling issues at the intersection of food, water, and energy. The challenge of meeting the increased demand for food, water, and energy and the resultant stress on our geo-sphere is broadly accepted as one of the major scientific challenges facing mankind. The feedback processes intrinsic to this tri-partite cycle are best-studied using sophisticated...

Stockholm World Water Week 2019

In 2019, World Water Week will explore an inclusive approach. This week’s theme: “Water and society – including all” is recognizing that not everybody is impacted in the same way by too little, too much or too dirty water. Less obvious than last year, the Nexus approach will remain at the heart of the water debate, especially through the seminar topic "Addressing migration through regional integration and water security for all", that explicitly connects water, energy and food security as the...
