"Preserving the Flow of Life", Lyon/France

Conference // "Preserving the Flow of Life", Lyon/France

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.

It will bridge with the COP 21 meeting that will take place in Paris (France) in December 2015. The programme will present a follow-up to Marseille, from the solutions put forward during the event to their materialisation; and the progresses on commitments for water and energy-related issues and the impacts of the multiple uses of water on food and health.

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 (SWWW) 2019

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.
