Assessment of the state of knowledge related to science, integrated observations, and governance in the W-E-F Nexus, Karlsruhe/Germany

Workshop // Assessment of the state of knowledge related to science, integrated observations, and governance in the W-E-F Nexus, Karlsruhe/Germany

to be held at Fraunhofer IOSB in Karlsruhe, November 23— 25, 2015.

Participation is by invitation only as places are limited.

You are welcome to express your interest via the "register" button on the workshop website; the organisers will ensure that you are kept informed and will confirm your participation in due time.

The goals of the Workshop are:

1. Identify gaps in our understanding and our ability to resolve W-E-F Nexus issues.

2. Explore

a) decision making at the operational level and

b) policy development at national and international levels in the Nexus with an emphasis on integrated management of energy and water, the links to bioenergy, the bio-economy and land management and the role of the public and private sectors.

3. Identify observation types and essential variables, datasets, software platforms and tools (e.g. for modelling and analysis at different spatiotemporal scales, change of scale, handling of Big Data), indicators for decision making,

4. Identify pilot projects, research activities, and program strategies whereby Earth observations can be effectively integrated into decision-making within emerging W-E-F Nexus collaborations.

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...

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.
