Session at EGU General Assembly 2019 // Sustainable Water Storage for Food and Energy Production

Superficial water storage is essential to sustain and stabilize water supply, food and energy production, reduce hydro-climatological hazards, and adapt to climate change. Synergistic approaches to respond to both food and energy needs and an integrated management of water are essential to respond to the WEF Nexus, in particular to attain the Sustainable Development Goals 2, 6 and 7. In that sense, dams and reservoirs play a major role in socio-economic development and presently we witness a...

Conference // Water Storage and Hydropower Development for Africa

The connection of energy and water is most obvious in electricity generation through hydropower. Plus dams have an important impact on the environemtn, on water availability upstream and downstream, and thus on food production and food security. The AFRICA 2019 conference will bring together industry professionals in Namibia, a country with a variety of dams, to discuss water and energy issues relevant to Africa.
