Exploring Sustainable Development Goals: Food, Water and Energy
Event

Workshop // Exploring Sustainable Development Goals: Food, Water and Energy

The objective of this workshop is to have a discussion to explore what post-2015 goals could address from a sustainable development perspective, with a focus on food, water and energy.

A past Bond DEG commissioned report 'Sustainable Development Goals: Building the Foundations for an Inclusive Process' demonstrated wide civil society support for some key principles that should underpin a future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework, including universality, integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development and transparency.

Building on that, the purpose of this discussion is to focus on what principles, components and emphasis are needed from future goals in relation to the themes of food, energy and water and to agree some next steps to take this forward.

The longer term agenda is to work with Beyond 2015 UK to feed in recommendations of substance to both the Open Working Group on SDGs and to the High Level Panel on the post-2015 Development Framework.

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...

Migration

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.
