Conference // "Water, Energy, Environment and Food Nexus: Solutions and Adaptation under Changing Climate", Lahore

The evidence for climate change is now considered to be unequivocal and it can cause huge impact on global water resources. Substantial adaptation is needed to ensure management of water resources for food, energy and environment.

Water is an essential resource for human well-being and ecosystem functioning. The availability of fresh water is continuously declining due to increasing water demands, global climate change and a multitude of water use conflicts. Thus the sustainable management of water is a key issue in future societal development. The water, being a fundamental element for life, is strongly linked with the food production, energy generation and environment. However, the anthropogenic activities have triggered the global climate change.

The conference will provide a great opportunity for scientists, engineers, water managers and professionals from education, research, government and private sectors consulting establishments to come together to express their opinions and interests. We expect to attract a wide international audience to attend the conference.

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...

Migration

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.
