Apply to Participate in Energy-Water-Climate Change Nexus Workshop

Deadline: 26 April 2017

How can our energy and water systems be more sustainable? How resilient are they against natural and social risks and potential disruptions? And how should different stakeholders, such as cities or multi-national companies, prepare themselves to understand sustainability and resilience in such context?

Applications are currently open for the workshop on “Energy-Water-Climate Change Nexus (EWCN) in a Transitional Economy: Sustainability and Resilience”.

Energy and water are both the foundation of human society and economy. The production and consumption of energy are closely integrated with that of water, and vice versa. In the past few decades, the rising demand for both energy and water has led to several crucial sustainability issues, such as climate change, renewable energy, urbanization, and responsible trading.

The workshop will bring together approximately thirty early-stage researchers who are interested in the energy-water-climate change nexus (EWCN) among different research areas. It will offer a platform for those researchers to exchange research ideas and methods extensively, thus discover further collaborative opportunities together. In the longer term, the workshop would hopefully establish formal academic communications among universities and research centers from UK and China, facilitate publications, and create various funding proposals.

The workshop aims to encourage communication among different research questions and state-of-the-art methodologies of EWCN related research. We hereby call for research ideas, frameworks and working papers from both countries.

The workshop will be hosted by Nanjing University and Lancaster University respectively.
