The meeting aims to discuss, plan and provide guidance to the implementation of the activities on the water-food-energy-ecosystems nexus under the programme of work for 2016-2018 of the Water Convention. In particular, the status of the on-going basin assessments will be reviewed and possible follow up actions to assessments already carried out discussed. Gaps in knowledge and possible strategic directions for future nexus work under the Water Convention with partners will be reflected on with insights from partners.
The working languages will be English, French, Russian and Spanish.
