Dresden Nexus Conference 2017 – SDGs and NEXUS Approach: Monitoring and Implementation
The Dresden Nexus Conference is a platform to discuss current research and initiatives applying the Nexus Approach and the benefits for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
It is a key pillar for advancing the nexus approach to the integrated management of resources. Bringing together scientists, implementers, decision-makers and donors, the Conference has and will continue to connect UN entities, first-class research institutions, governmental institutions and nongovernmental organisations under the umbrella of Sustainable Development Goals and the Water-Soil-Waste Nexus.
JRC scientist and Chair of the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS) and the IPBES thematic assessment on land degradation and restoration (LDR), Luca Montanrella, is a keynote speaker at the Conference.

Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) one day seminar on the Water – Energy – Food nexus
Location: Crowne Plaza hotel, Caversham, Reading, United Kingdom
Date: Thursday 18 May 2017
Time: Start: 9:00 for 9:30 Close: 16:30
Water, energy and food are inextricably linked. To help to achieve water, energy and food security at local, national and global scales a nexus approach is required. This is an approach that integrates management and governance across these sectors. This one day seminar brings together a range of practitioners and researchers that are carrying out work within the Water – Energy – Food nexus. Talks will cover a range of topics including:
· Innovative methods of trade off modelling in low income countries
· How future water availability in the UK could affect power production
· The ways in which management of catchments can affect water supply and treatment
· How agent-based modelling of fish is relevant to the Water – Energy – Food nexus
· How small scale innovations can be scaled up to reduce the use of water, energy and food and thus lower our carbon footprint
