Water, Energy and Food Nexus Conference, Bonn, Germany
Oct 13th, 2011 |
The German Federal Government is organizing the international “Bonn 2011 Conference: The Water Energy and Food Security Nexus – Solutions for the Green Economy” to be held from the 16th to the 18th of November 2011 in Bonn, Germany. The conference has been announced by German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a specific German contribution to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development “Rio2012”.
Global Trends such as population growth and rising economic prosperity are expected to increase demand for energy, food and water which will compromise the sustainable use of natural resources. Besides positive effects, this pressure on resources could finally result in shortages which may put water, energy and food security for the people at risk, hamper economic development, lead to social and geopolitical tensions and cause lasting irreparable environmental damage.
