Stockholm WWW 2022 // Improving security and climate resilience with participatory processes

This year’s Stockholm World Water Week will be centred around the topic of “Seeing the Unseen: The Value of Water”. The Frexus session aims at taking the discussion on water, energy and food insecurity and its implications for local, national and regional stability and peace further by identifying opportunities and ways for participatory processes with local communities.

About Stockholm World Water Week

World Water Week is the leading conference on global water issues, held every year since 1991. The Week attracts a diverse mix of participants from many professional backgrounds and every corner of the world. Together we develop solutions to the planet’s greatest water-related challenges, such as poverty, the climate crisis, and biodiversity loss.

About the Session

This event explores how local communities in sub-Saharan Africa may improve their climate resilience and security situation through the water-energy-food security Nexus. With examples from the ground, the convenors reflect upon a process that builds on advanced analysis tools to enable a participatory creation and implementation of action plans. Following the opening speech of Ilaria Musetti (EESA-Dakar), Professor Dambo (Université Abdou Moumouni of Niamey, Niger) will shine light on the causal loop developed by Frexus and WPS, as well as elaborate on the local experience.
