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.

DutchDubai // The Interconnection of Water, Energy and Food presented at the Dutch Pavilion at the Expo 2020 in Dubai, UAE

The Dutch pavilion in the World Expo, hosted by Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in 2020, will focus on the interconnection of water, energy and food. As the second-largest exporter of agricultural products in the world, the Netherlands wants to support collaboration as well as minimising the footprint of our interactive ecosystem by building the pavilion with local resources and locally rented building materials.
