The event places local data, tools and practical examples in the context of global scenarios and assessments, for outscaling and up-scaling. By presenting a set of local and regional cases, this seminar demonstrates how integrated approaches can reduce tradeoffs and improve resource use efficiency, how they can contribute to more equal benefit sharing and eventually become key pillars of sustainable development.
This seminar will pick up on previous nexus fora, as recently held e.g. in Bonn, Marseille, London and Rio. With that it will contribute to building a community of practice, bringing together actors from governmental, non-governmental and intergovernmental organisations with the private sector and science. Jointly we will move the nexus further towards operationalisation.
