Nexus Conference Update
If you haven’t yet registered for the Nexus Conference-Water-Energy-Food-Climate, it begins on Wednesday so do register online at nexusconference.web.unc.edu . The conference is dovetailed into the end of the March session of the Sustainable Development Goals Open Working Group.
This is your chance to leave the snow and cold of New York for the sun and warmth of Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Stay afterwards and visit the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro where the 1960s civil rights movement started at the Woolworth Counter that the museum is built around. Or go to a local speak easy in Carrboro or a wild horse safari on the Outer Banks.
Thanks to those who contributed to the Declaration, the second draft of which will be online on Tuesday the 4th of March. The final version will be on the web site on Monday the 10th of March. It will be submitted to the SDG OWG and to the UNPGA Office. As you may know we were able to present the Draft Declaration to the PGA’s Thematic Debate on Water and Energy on the 19th of February.
All the plenary sessions will be uploaded each evening so if you can’t come then go to https://nexusconference.web.unc.edu/ and watch them the next day.
