Webinar on Water Footprint

21 April 2022 at 2.30 p.m. CET

Freshwater is a scarce resource and its annual availability is limited and demand is growing. The water footprint of humanity has exceeded sustainable levels at several places and is unequally distributed among people. Good information about water footprints of communities and businesses will help to understand how we can achieve a more sustainable and equitable use of fresh water. – In order to deepen the topic, the association has invited a renowned expert in the field of “Water Footprint” as a keynote speaker.

We are looking forward to welcome Professor Joep Schyns from the University of Twente (NL), Department of Civil Engineering -Multidisciplinary Water Management group. He is also the coordinator of WaterStat & WaterPub (Water Footprint Network).

Webinar on Climate Change Impact on Water-Food-Energy Nexus

18 May 2022 at 2.30 p.m. CET

Although the concept of the water-energy-food nexus is gaining ground and climate change adaptation has become an urgent need, few efforts have been made to understand the linkages between the nexus perspective and climate change adaptation. The nexus perspective ultimately also helps to stimulate critical thinking on adaptation to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The increasing pressure to adapt to climate change and at the same time to discuss climate protection measures immediately, stresses the need to improve cross-sector and cross-border cooperation and coherence of efforts to properly tackle the nexus-based adaptation challenge.

We are looking forward to welcome Prof. Olcay Ünver (PhD). He is Professor of Practice at Environmental and Resource Management Programme and Senior Global Futures Scientist at Global Futures Laboratory at Arizona State University.
