Dresden Nexus Conference

When looking at the before mentioned nexus of water, energy, and food security, the question arises which environmental resources have to be managed in an integrated way to achieve the sought integrated and sustainable management. For United Nations University Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES), these environmental resources are: water, soil, and waste.

The Dresden Nexus Conference is a platform developed to advance the sustainable development agenda by bringing actors together who apply a Nexus Approach to resource management. Side by side, researchers and implementers (policy- and decision makers) from universities, national and international organizations, UN entities, ministries and governmental agencies, as well as individual researchers and stakeholders from the private sector and civil society discuss current research and initiatives applying the Nexus Approach and the benefits for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
