UNECE 4th Task Force Meeting on the Water-Food-Energy Ecoysystems Nexus

The fourth meeting Task Force on the Water-Food-Energy-Ecosystems Nexus will take place in the Palais des Nations in Geneva on 8 December 2016 back to back with the global workshop on Assessments of the water-food-energy-ecosystems nexus and response measures in transboundary basins (Geneva, 6-7 December 2016) , under the leadership of the Government of Finland, with the support of the UNECE secretariat.

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.

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...
