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.

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...

SWWW 2019 Seminar // Addressing Migration through Regional Integration and Water Security for All

Regional economic integration can foster transboundary water management as well as energy and food security. It also attracts investments that address infrastructure deficits, accelerates participation in global and regional value chains, and stimulates economic growth. All are important entry points for sustainable development. However, environmental and social co-benefits are typically not as well quantified as economic growth.

Special Session at 38th IAHR World Congress // Sustainable Water Storage to Meet Water, Food, and Energy Development Goals

Storage to stabilize water availability is essential to sustain water, food and energy production, reduce hazards, and adapt to climate change. Regulation of water resources using dams and reservoirs played a major role in the socio-economic development of northern countries during the 20th century, but practices of the time often led to undesired environmental and social impacts. Thousands more dams and reservoirs are planned for construction in the next decades, mainly in Asia, Africa, and...
