This Conference is addressed to policy-makers, researchers and practitioners. It will analyse the role of science as a driver of innovation for the sustainable development of the region and the interface of science with the policy and decision-making processes.
Increasing demand for water, energy and food, due to population growth and urbanisation, is aggravated by unprecedented extreme weather and climatic conditions.
This situation is likely to undermine the sustainable and peaceful development of the Mediterranean region, which cannot be achieved by simply considering the management of Water, Energy, Food and Ecosystems (WEFE) as separate resources.
The Conference, addressed to policy-makers, researchers and practitioners, will analyse the role of science as a driver of innovation for the sustainable development of the region and the interface of science with policy and decision-making processes.
Recommendations will be made for practical measures to integrate new paths in research and planning across the WEFE Nexus, and provide a collaborative response throughout the Mediterranean.
