Young Professionals Perspectives on the Water and Energy Nexus, Koblenz/Germany

Workshop // Young Professionals Perspectives on the Water and Energy Nexus, Koblenz/Germany

On 26 November 2012, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) conducts a one day meeting for young professionals in Koblenz, Germany, to discuss the water and energy nexus.



This is the follow up of a discussion started at the Bonn2011 Nexus Conference

{|Website of the 2011 Workshop}


The workshop takes place following the Water, Food and Energy Nexus Conference held in Bonn in 2011, as well as the Rio +20 Conference. It aims at enabling young professionals to deal with the water, energy and food security nexus in order to develop a scientific view, methods and management approaches. As an outcome of the workshop, a declaration will be formulated on the issues that the participants deem most important with regard to sustainability and the long term prospects of the nexus. This meeting is another step towards promoting the involvement of young professionals in the discussion and development of water and energy related topics.

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...
