Green breakfast : Christmas climate special

This autumn series of Green Breakfasts will feature four leading international scientists from Oxford University, from a former Director of CERN and the Large Hadron Collider to the Chair of a Royal Society Future Earth group.

They will explore the opportunities and challenges of the so-called 'food-energy-water nexus' and its increasingly complex interaction with the planet's ecosystem.

What are Green Breakfasts?

Green Breakfasts are a series of talks held in the spring and autumn of each year. They are held at our offices and are intended to provide information and facilitate discussion in an informal environment for those interested or affected by the impact of climate change and climate variability.

We start at 7.30 am for breakfast and coffee, followed by speakers at 8.00 am and wrap up by 9.00 am.

This time we are doing something a little bit different — and I think the most exciting series so far.

The series is jointly organised by Blake Morgan and AgileOx, a new initiative being launched by Oxford University to promote interaction and enterprise between researchers and local partners around Oxfordshire's environmental futures.

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.

Special Session at 38th IAHR World Congress // Sustainable Water Storage to Meet Water, Food, and Energy Development Goals

Storage to stabilize water availability is essential to sustain water, food and energy production, reduce hazards, and adapt to climate change. Regulation of water resources using dams and reservoirs played a major role in the socio-economic development of northern countries during the 20th century, but practices of the time often led to undesired environmental and social impacts. Thousands more dams and reservoirs are planned for construction in the next decades, mainly in Asia, Africa, and...
