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.

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

Delegate fees are as follows:

Full time employees: £80 including VAT

Students and retirees: £66 including VAT

Corporate sponsorship (two delegates and a stand): £210 including VAT

Coffee and tea together with a buffet lunch are included in the fee.

Both CIWEM members and non-CIWEM members are welcome to attend.
