Gender Dimension of the WaterEnergyFood Nexus in the Middle East and North Africa Region

Workshop // Gender Dimension of the WaterEnergyFood Nexus in the Middle East and North Africa Region

Gender is one of the major cross-cutting issues regarding the water-energy-food nexus.

The nexus and its gender dimension has crucial importance for the in the Middle East and North Africa Region, where gender is a cross-cutting issue for water, food and energy sectors, and there is significant need to develop and apply gendered approaches.

This workshop aims to bring together different perspectives to understanding and improving the gender dimension of the water-energy-food nexus.

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 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.
