Webinar // WEF Nexus, Water Productivity, and Water Accounting

ADB Water Sector Group and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) are putting on a webinar series 'Science and Innovation for a Water-Secure Future for All', where Part 2 will show the practical promise of implementing the water-food-energy (WEF) Nexus while also explaining how Nexus benefits can be (i) better understood through water accounting, and (ii) realized through integrated basin approaches based on multi-stakeholder platforms.

Background

For its first webinar series in 2021, the ADB Water Sector Group is working with the International Water Management Institute (IWMI). This four-part series 'Science and Innovation for a Water-Secure Future for All' focuses on innovative approaches and tools that can contribute toward advancing water security and climate resilience in Asia and the Pacific.

Experts from IWMI will share different ways developing member countries can strengthen resilience through tested water solutions, as well as discuss water accounting and how it can help in understanding and managing the water-food-energy (WFE) nexus. Irrigation asset management will also be tackled, including presenting IWMI’s SAMS4i software package that helps manage key assets and assess spatial variability. Lastly, they will zero in on the circular economy through case studies that demonstrate success.

Webinar Series

Part 1 - Centrality of Water in Climate Resilience

Part 2 - WEF Nexus, Water Productivity, and Water Accounting

Part 3 - Sustainable Asset Management System for Irrigation

Part 4 - Circular Economy for Water Security

Part 2: WEF Nexus, Water Productivity, and Water Accounting

The water-food-energy (WEF) nexus and water accounting approaches are considered as two powerful tools that can maximize production derived from water use across sectors. This webinar will show the practical promise of implementing the nexus while also explaining how nexus benefits can be (i) better understood through water accounting, and (ii) realized through integrated basin approaches based on multi-stakeholder platforms.

The first presentation will outline how improving water use efficiency can reduce energy use in the irrigated agriculture sector of Uzbekistan. The second presentation will outline how water accounting approaches could enhance multisectoral benefits. A final presentation will provide an example of integrated water resources management (IWRM) -oriented processes utilized to engage stakeholders in allocation and management decisions. The webinar will conclude with a discussion on opportunities to package WEF interventions with water accounting and IWRM processes that can lead to water productivity and increase sustainability.
