UNESCO International Symposium - Resolving the Water Energy Nexus
November 26-28, 2008
This symposium has been organized within the framework of the objectives of the millenium for development. Water and energy are essential resources for improving or maintaining the living conditions of humankind. Their availibility must grow during the next decades, to fulfil the needs created by an ever increasing world demography, and a necessary sustainable economic development. It is therefore essential to look for efficient strategies regarding organization, management and governance, taking into account the socio-cultural aspects and the legitimate aspirations of emerging, developing or developed countries.
