Event International Conference: "Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus. Synergies and Tradeoffs: Governance and Tools at various Scales"

The conference "Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus. Synergies and Tradeoffs: Governance and Tools at various Scales" to be held at 19-20 May, 2014 in Bonn, Germany addresses the linkages across key natural resource sectors so that jointly improving the efficiency is considered to be a win-win-win strategy for human development and environmental sustainability.

Recognizing the sustainability of the Water-Energy-Food Nexus as a key research-for-action initiative, the conferece will allow an internal policy consultation process to inform, influence, and catalyze action by key actors—including policymakers, non‐governmental organizations, the private sector, educators, and researchers.

This process will bring together available information, identify knowledge and action gaps, share lessons on viable instruments and approaches, facilitate networks, and contribute to consensus on priorities for appropriate investment and action by different actors and stakeholders for moving towardaction on the Water-Energy-Food Nexus.
