The nexus between water and energy is one of the most pressing and important issues that must be resolved by both current and future generations.
In an effort to address the problems surrounding this issue, the University of Sfax (Tunisia), in cooperation with the Sanitary Environmental Engineering Division (SEED) of the University of Salerno (Italy), the Advanced Institute of Water Industry at Kyungpook National University (Korea) and The Energy and Resources Institute, TERI (India) is organizing the third edition of the WaterEnergyNEXUS conference, that will be held on the island of Djerba (Tunisia) on 1st-5th December 2020..
The first edition of WaterEnergyNEXUS was organized in Korea in 2017 during the Asian International Water Week, one of the more pertinent and significant meetings in Asia for scientists and professionals working in the field of water use and sustainability. The second edition was organized in Salerno (Italy) in 2018.
This third WaterEnergyNEXUS conference will provide an international platform where key topics on water management can be shared and discussed by participants with the presentation of nature-based solutions, advanced technologies and best practices by a panel of experts invited as plenary and keynote speakers. Another objective of this 2020 WaterEnergyNEXUS conference is to enhance cooperation, integration and sustainable development in the Euro-Mediterranean region on the critical links between Water and Energy.
The WaterEnergyNEXUS series of conferences are supported by the UNESCO World Water Association Programme (WWAP) and the International Water Association (IWA). It also enjoys the patronage of several international scientific societies, associations and organizations and has established a publishing partnership with Springer Nature.
If the risk associated with the coronavirus pandemic continues after 30th September 2020, the 3rd WEN conference may be moved to an online format or it may be postponed until Spring 2021.
