International Conference // Summer Water Academy in Bonn/Germany

A summer academy for young scientists and leading experts

As part of the international conference on "Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus. Synergies and Tradeoffs: Governance and Tools at various Scales", to be held in Bonn, Germany on 19-20 May, 2014, a summer academy will bring together young scientists and leading experts.

Paper Submission

Participants will be asked to submit a paper related to the themes of the conference "Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus":

- Tools for the sustainable implementation of the Nexus approach

- Governance and management of the Nexus

- Considering the Environment and Livelihoods

- Implementing the Nexus at Various Scales

During the summer school week, participants will present their papers followed by intensive mentoring and feedback from experts and peers. This process will help participants in gaining maximum attention for their research findings, increasing their impact both in and outside the academic community. The final papers will be published in a special issue of a scientific journal.

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...

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.
