Online event in Zoom on November 8th 2023, at 2-4PM (CET time)

By 2050, the OECD estimates that there will be 9 billion people on Earth. In addition, it is estimated that food production will increase by 60%, energy consumption by 80%, and water needs by 55% globally – all of which could affect land use patterns. Water-Energy-Food Nexus (WEF) is vital for addressing these complex challenges. Adopting a nexus approach facilitates a more comprehensive understanding of the interactions between natural resources and promotes integrated solutions for a more sustainable future.

In this symposium, we aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art, gaps and advances in WEF research. We invited two well-known keynotes and prominent early-career scientists to cover a wide range of topics including water and energy footprints, the role of forests and food waste, governance, and many more. Sounds interesting? Then see you in November!

A participation certificate may be issued to participants upon request. Also, please join the LinkedIn event where you can find other participants and boost your network!
