Oxford Talks // Conference on Localising Food Systems: The food-energy-water nexus issues of re-distributed manufacturing

This conference is intended to stimulate exchange and debate about the related issues in re-distributed manufacturing (RDM), food systems, and food-energy-water nexus issues at enterprise, local and regional levels. This event will be truly multidisciplinary, welcoming contributions from engineering, agriculture, natural sciences and social sciences. It will also encourage debate and share perspectives with business, local authorities and stakeholders in the food, energy and water sectors.

The conference will offer opportunities to:

  • Showcase research in these areas including the results from our Food, Energy, Water Local Nexus Network (LNN) through plenary talks and poster presentations
  • Examine key research questions for future exploration, with a view to establishing potential research collaborations through structured breakout discussions
  • Foster the extension of the community of researchers and stakeholders for sustainable local food-energy-water nexuses through face-to-face networking during the lunch and drinks sessions.

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...

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.
