EMG Nexus Dialogues Series // Realising the Sustainable Development Goals - Integrating the Environment and Health Agendas into Policies for Urban Settings

The fourth EMG (UN Environment Management Group) Nexus Dialogue to be held on 3 Dec 2017 in Nairobi willbring UN agencies and other stakeholders closer together in identifying further synergies and partnerships at the intersection of the different goals, and subsequently supporting the implementation of the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda in a more coherent and collaborative manner.

The fourth EMG Nexus Dialogue will consist of two segments:

  • Technical Segment (December 3rd, 2017, 11:00 – 13:15)
  • High Level Segment (December 3rd, 2017, 14:00 – 16:00)

During the Technical Segment, through presentations and short discussions, attendees will focus on the integration of environment and health policies in urban settings; the interlinkages between the environment and health agendas in the SDGs in addressing urban pollution; and, the existing partnerships and collaboration at the city, national and global levels on the themes of air, water and solid waste pollution.  

The High Level Segment will build upon the outcomes of the presentations and technical discussions, to explore partnerships for integrating the environment and health agendas into policies for urban settings. The panellists will share their perspectives on issues requiring further action.

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.
