4th Forum on the Climate-Water-Energy Security Nexus

On June 12, 2014, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the WBCSD hosted the 4th Forum on the Climate-Water-Energy Security Nexus, which explored impacts of climate change on the water-energy equation and discussed the way-forward on how the energy sector can enhance its resilience to climate change.

Recognizing the impacts of climate change on water and the important role water plays in energy supply, the IEA and the WBCSD organized this meeting to advance the understanding of these issues and their policy implications. The purpose was to facilitate a dialogue among businesses and policy makers on how to jointly build the resilience of the energy sector to climate induced water stresses.

You will find below report on this event as well as the presentations.

The WBCSD has been developing several activities around the climate, water, energy nexus. More comprehensive information can be found in the following reports :
