"Blue Planet" <<-->> Berlin Water Dialogues

This year Berlin has started a series of events called "Blue Planet — Berlin Water Dialogues". The issue of water is an umbrella under which the organisers integrate the other aspects of the Nexus and provide a platform for dialogue for stakeholders and experts across different sectors.

The aim of the initiative is to support and facilitate the process of leaving behind the silo thinking and hence to transport the Nexus perspective. The first dialogue took place in conjunction with the international trade fair "Water Berlin International" this year in May. The second Berlin Water Dialogue will be hosted in conjunction with the "International Green Week" (the largest trade fair on food and agriculture) in January 2012. The meeting will be part of the Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA).
