The 2015 Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food, and Energy

Forum // The 2015 Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food, and Energy

The 2015 Greater Mekong Forum on Water, Food, and Energy will be held from October 21-23, 2015 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) is pleased to announce that the 2015 Mekong Forum on Water, Food and Energy will be held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from October 21-23, 2015.

The Forum is the largest event in the Mekong Region to address the confluence of water, food and energy. It brings together regional water, food and energy professionals and thinkers to explore new and emergent ideas in water, its development and its exploitation. In 2013, the event attracted over 270 participants from 95 different institutions.

The Forum is organized around a wide variety of topics with sessions led by our regional and international partners. The event is not a research forum, but designed, rather, for researchers to present their innovations to potential users. All sessions are specifically designed to engage participants in discussion and deliberation, and to provide opportunities for participants to query and challenge research scientists.


Participation is by invitation only, and the number of participants limited to a maximum of 250.

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 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.
