The Water Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will host the Nexus 2014: Water, Food, Climate and Energy Conference on March 3-7. The Conference will bring together researchers and practitioners working in government, civil society and business, focusing on the nexus approach. Building on the Water, Food and Energy Nexus Conference held in Bonn, Germany in 2011, this Conference aims to address the connected, but distinct, relationships between water, food, climate, energy, security, sustainability and development.
Abstracts for poster and verbal presentations can be submitted through the Conference website. The submission deadline is September 27, 2013.
The themes for the 2014 Conference will be:
- Economics and Finance of the Nexus
- Politics, Policy and Regulation
- Ecosystem Approaches and Resilience
- Resource Scarcity and Security
- Remote Sensing and GIS Approaches
Through the Conference, participants will be able to examine cutting-edge research, debate emerging solutions, and explore the link between science and policy. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to build new, or strengthen existing, networks as well as join the Nexus Academic-Practitioner Network.
