Nexus Conference // IWA Water, Energy and Climate Conference 2014

The problems commony known as the water energy food nexus are too tighly interwoven to tackle them alone. On this conference in Mexico City, there will be lots of opportunities to share knowledge from all of thoses fields from all over the world and to strengthen ties to tackle those problems together

The conference addresses a global mosaic of member communities, including academic researchers and research centres, utilities, consultants, regulators, industrial water users and water equipment manufacturers. With this broad potential audience, a large impact is intended to sustainably tackle the complex problems of the nexus. The conference is going to be accompanied by an exhibition

The conference organizers strive to connect many communities, organisations and industries to present best preactise solutions how they minimized their impact on water and energy consumption and how to minimize their carbon footprint and improve water security.

Experts form across the water circle will have the chance to discuss and share their knowledge in a broad variety of event formats: technical sessions, workshops, panel debates, discussion groups, Young Water Professional sessions and industry interaction.

The conference is not tailored for researchers or practioners, but for a broad exchange of knowledge between those groups.

The call for papers for this event has been extended until 15 Dec 2013.
