UN Water Seminar Exploring the Water Energy Nexus

Video record of session 'Exploring the Water-Energy Nexus' at World Water Week, 4 September 2013. UN-Water organized this seminar at World Water Week 2013 as part of its preparatory process for World Water Day (WWD) in 2014, which will focus on "Water and Energy". It was meant to trigger a dialogue on the nexus of water and energy, identify stakeholders who could be actively involved in further developing the water-energy linkages in the context of the WWD 2014, and identify policy and capacity development issues in which UN-Water can offer significant contributions. The topic of this seminar also links with the primary theme of the 2014 World Water Week in Stockholm and of the 5th edition of the World Water Development Report, which will be published in 2014.
