As such Water for Development is of crucial importance to UNU, which is why UNU-FLORES will be representing the the organization at WWWeek with the #UNU4Water booth. Yet water is just one piece of the puzzle for both development and the environment. Hence UNU-FLORES will be presenting the 'Nexus Approach', which aims to encourage a more sustainable management of water, soil and waste. The approach is based on the understanding that environmental resources are inextricably linked and therefore need to be governed in an integrated way.

UNU has a total of 60 water projects, based out of Instistutes such as UNU-FLORES in Dresden, UNU-INWEH in Canada, UNU-INRA in Ghana, and UNU-IAS in Japan, among several others. Of these 60 projects, 24 broadly focus on Asia, 16 on Africa, and 8 on the Americas. Stop by the booth to find out more about these projects and the work the individual institutes are performing. #UNU4Water
