WWAP at the next World Water Week

WWAP will participate in the next World Water Week, 1st – 6th September 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden, the annual focal point for the globe’s water issues. 
WWAP will co-organize, in collaboration with UN-Water, UNU and UNIDO, the “UN-Water seminar on the Water-Energy Nexus”, as part of the 2014 World Water Day preparatory process, that will focus on water and energy. The objective of this event is to initiate a dialogue that focuses on the broad range of issues linked to the Water-Energy Nexus. The event will also discuss the preliminary findings and key messages of the 5th edition of the UN World Water Development Report, and will identify stakeholders who could be actively involved in further developing the water-energy linkages.
WWAP, in co-operation with SIWI, will also be organizing the seminar “Water and Energy: Beyond the Nexus”, that will reach beyond the ‘water for energy’/‘energy for water’ metrics and the description of inter-linkages between these domains, focusing on the broader water-related implications of the changing global energy mix and other energy production trends. Discussions will centre on strengthening collaboration between the water and energy communities and developing appropriate response measures, managing tradeoffs, and maximizing co-benefits.
WWAP, in collaboration with UNW-DPC (Bonn, Germany), will also be providing support to UNW-DPAC (Zaragoza, Spain) in organizing the UN-Water Stakeholder Dialogue on “the Post 2015 Development Agenda – The World We Want”.
