Dresden Nexus Conference 2015
The first of the biennial Dresden Nexus conferences (DNC2015) will take place in Dresden, Germany, 25–27 March 2015, as a follow up of our kick-off workshop on “Advancing a Nexus Approach to the Sustainable Management of Water, Soil and Waste“ organised in 2013.
The nexus approach to the sustainable management of water, soil and waste integrates environmental management and governance across sectors and scales. This approach is based on the understanding that environmental resources are inextricably intertwined.
Global change will put additional pressure on environmental resources and related ecosystem services as well as on the economic development. The DNC 2015 will deal with these challenges.
There will be three thematic topics on three consecutive days; each day will deal with one aspect of global change: climate, urbanisation and demography. It will be discussed how the integrated management of environmental resources guided by nexus approach may help to achieve the potential targets of the post-2015 agenda.
The DNC2015 will assemble policy-makers and managers of environmental resources, academic, educational and research institutions, national and international organizations, including UN organisations and UNU institutes, NGOs and others who work on and are interested in environmental resources management.
