Filed under: Events presentations

The primary objective of the conference was to bring together a broad range of stakeholders from the water, energy and food sectors in an effort to improve understanding of the interdependencies and develop a joint perspective on the common challenges. Discussion focused on options and solutions as well as on enabling environments and incentives for change. The event provided a showcase for innovative solutions and help forge a common policy agenda to address the water, food and energy challenges. Its deliberations applied the Nexus perspective. This requires sectoral decisions to reflect the consequences for other objectives and exploit potential productivity and efficiency gains within every sector. Furthermore, unavoidable trade-offs between competing objectives must be entered into consciously on a well-informed basis. The objectives of the conference were to: develop policy recommendations based on multi-stakeholder consultations and adopting a nexus perspective; position the Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus perspective as a key dimension of the Rio+20 process; launch concrete initiatives to address the Water, Energy and Food Security Nexus in a coherent and sustainable way. A large amount of information is available, including presentations (access through the Programme link); and draft policy recommendations; a backgrouind paper; hot topic seminar papers; and daily summaries (access through the Documents link).
