Workshop // WEF NEXUS-SDGs Position Paper

This workshop is part of the framework “EC Nexus Dialogues – Phase I (2016-2018)”. The main objectives of the workshop will be to validate the draft document compiling all the contributions and to generate conclusions and recommendations to address the needs of institutions and organisations implementing the WEF Nexus in practice, including quality control of relevant projects, design criteria for these, and demonstration of the added-value and benefits occurring from the investment.

A collection of water-focused organisations and beyond have contributed short papers on this topic under four different themes:

  • i) Governance and Institutions,
  • ii) WEF Nexus tools/models/data,
  • iii) Sustainable Technological Approaches and Solutions, and
  • iv) Nexus Investment and Financing.

Contributors have been identified under the coordination of JRC D2 “Water and Marine Resources Unit” and IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) and will constitute the core group of participants to the workshop.

The Position Paper’s main audience is DG DEVCO and the Delegations, providing further support to DG DEVCO for Phase II of the Nexus Dialogues project. For this reason, dissemination of the final document comprising a policy brief and the proceedings of the workshop will take place in collaboration with DEVCO.

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...
