The Nexus approach requires systemic thinking and a
quest for integrated solutions to guide our decision-making about
resource use and development and move to a more sustainable planet.
The plenary themes for the Nexus 2014 Conference are:
Urban Challenges of the Nexus:
Local and Global Perspectives
The world has passed the second wave of urbanization
with more than 50% of the population now living in urban areas—expected
to rise to 60% by 2030. The challenge of providing increased food,
water and energy is huge and interlinked.
Nexus Perspectives: Water, Energy
Water and energy have a symbiotic relationship; all
types of energy provision consume water, and water supply and sewage
disposal require energy. This theme explores traditional and
alternative energy sources and the opportunities moving forward.
Nexus Perspectives: Water, Food and
Agriculture is one of the dominant water users in the US
and abroad. Understanding how to conserve water and reuse water can
have a dramatic effect on water availability and food production in the
Natural Resource Security for
People: Water, Food and Energy
As the challenges for water, energy and food become
greater, the competition for these resources will also increase.
Individuals, companies, and countries need to think critically about
resource management and use, both now and in the future.
New businesses are increasingly adopting an
environmental outlook. What are start-ups in North Carolina and around
the world doing to address water, food, climate and energy?
Nexus Corporate Stewardship: How
Business is Improving Resource Use
Industry is a great user of water and energy, and a
major food producer. How can corporations address competitive demand
and related resource use? What are corporate best practices in
sustainability and “greening” business?
Financing the Nexus: Policy and
Often funding is through sectors. In a more interlinked
world, how can traditional and new funding be utilized?
Below are potential areas for abstract submissions. They
do not represent what will be chosen, but topics that we will explore
during the Conference. We hope you will join us in March.

The Group recognizes that there is an inextricable link between good governance and sustainable development and that, as the 2030 Agenda is implemented, governance challenges will need discussion and action at all levels and by all institutions. In 2020, the Group of Friends convened UN officials, experts, and representatives from government at four participatory workshops on relevant governance issues. The workshops were organized in partnership with UN-DESA Office of Intergovernmental Support and Coordination for Sustainable Development focusing on advancing the 2030 Agenda into the HLPF’s
