Nexus 2018: Water, Food, Energy, and Climate

April 16-18, 2018
The Friday Center
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, NC, USA

The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended until November 15, 2017. 

Registration is now open, with "early bird" discounts available until November 15, 2017.

The Water Institute is reconvening the Nexus conference in 2018. This will be the second Nexus Conference that we have organized. The first, in 2014, made a significant input to the negotiations for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the Chapel Hill Declaration.​

The 2018 Nexus Conference will focus on:

  • the science-policy interface;
  • partnerships;
  • solutions;
  • review of Sustainable Development Goal commitments (2018 and for the Heads of State review in 2019);
  • sharing of tools, indicators and methodologies; and
  • the identification of gaps.

Proposals should focus on the interface between some of the these Nexus areas:

  • Water;
  • Energy;
  • Food;
  • Climate Change;
  • Health;
  • Urban development;
  • Migration and mobility.

We are looking for examples of different methodological approaches, indicators being used, comparative studies, solutions, toolkits, successful partnerships, gaps to be addressed, and reviews of the implementation of the relevant SDGs that address Nexus issues.

Nexus 2018 is guided by an advisory board of experts from governments, intergovernmental organizations, academia and other key stakeholders.

We are currently seeking sponsors for the Nexus 2018 conference. More information on sponsorship benefits is available on the conference website. If you are interested in sponsoring the conference, please contact Heather Pace.
