The Water Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and collaborators will host the Nexus 2014: Water, Food, Climate and Energy Conference on March 5-8, 2014 to examine the thoughts and actions related to a nexus approach. The co-Directors of the Conference are Jamie Bartram, Director of The Water Institute, and Felix Dodds, Associate Fellow at the Tellus Institute, with support from an International Advisory Committee. The Conference will bring together scientists and practitioners working in government, civil society and business, and other stakeholders focusing on the questions of how and why the nexus approach is, and can be, used on international and local levels. Plenary sessions: Urban Challenges of the Nexus: Local and Global perspectives Nexus perspectives: Water, Energy and Climate Nexus perspectives: Water, Food and Climate Nexus Corporate Stewardship: How business is improving resource use Natural Resource Security for People: Water, Food and Energy Financing the Nexus: policy and practice Learning from the past, building a new future: Nexus Scientific Research About the Nexus: There is no place in an interlinked world for isolated solutions aimed at just one sector. If the world is going to reduce hunger and eradicate poverty, achieving security for water, energy and food is critical. This challenge is becoming even more critical with the impacts of climate change, and water will be the medium by which we will address much of the nexus.
