UN-Water Seminar: Exploring the Water-Energy Nexus

UN-Water is organizing this seminar as part of its preparatory process for the World Water Day (WWD) in 2014, which will focus on “Water and Energy”. It is meant to trigger a dialogue on the nexus of water and energy, identify stakeholders who could be actively involved in further developing the water-energy linkages in the context of the WWD 2014, and identify policy and capacity development issues in which UN-Water can offer significant contributions. The topic of this seminar also links with the primary theme of the 2014 World Water Week in Stockholm, and with the theme of the 5th edition of the World Water Development Report, which will be published in 2014.
