Conference // World Future Energy Summit/Abu Dhabi

The World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2013 will bring together global leaders in policy, technology and business to discuss the state of the art, develop new ways of thinking and shape the future of renewable energy.

Building on the high profile successes of WFES 2012, the sixth annual gathering of future energy's world leaders will be home to brilliant minds and inspiring thinkers for three days of expert debate and world class innovation in the heart of Abu Dhabi. January 2013 will mark the first year of the International Water Summit which will be held in conjunction with the World Future Energy Summit. The International Water Summit is the only event that focuses specifically on the water energy nexus and the challenges of this within arid environments. The event will include a political summit, expert conference and exhibition for delegates and water experts from all over the world.

Now, as the centerpiece of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, WFES 2013 will work seamlessly with a string of other global conferences in sustainability, renewable energy and cleantech, including the inaugural International Water Summit and IRENA to create an unrivalled global hub of expertise and connections.

With truly worldwide reach and authoritative subject matter expertise, WFES 2013 will bring together depth of knowledge and breadth of talent to inspire audiences, share insights, stimulate debate — and influence the agenda for the years in prospect. It is a platform from which conventions can be challenged and new thinking shaped.

Conference speakers, delegates and exhibitors are truly world class. WFES 2012 Opening Ceremony speakers included the Premier of China and the Prime Minister of Korea as well as the President of the United Nations General Assembly and the Secretary General of the United Nations. Heads of State and Heads of Government have used WFES as a unique global platform from which to launch initiatives, announce investment, make policy statements and deliver targeted media messages designed to raise awareness and increase business.

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.
