2014 UN-Water Annual International Zaragoza Conference

The UN-Water Annual Zaragoza Conferences underpin UN-Water’s preparations for World Water Day (22 March 2014), and is part of the road map for the event. The 2014 conference will focus on the nexus of water and energy. A focused dialogue will already have been initiated with the UN-Water seminar on the same topic during World Water Week in Stockholm.

Water and energy (W&E) are closely interlinked and are interdependent. W&E inter-linkages have an important role in the post-2015 development agenda and the conceptualisation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). There are some main challenges, interconnections, and opportunities for realising synergies and the benefits of joint responses on the water and energy nexus, including the design of climate resilience and green economies. Partnerships between institutions, agencies and stakeholders can help to achieve some of these benefits.
