31 August 2014 - 05 September 2014
During the focus year on Water and Energy, the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) organizes the 2014 World Water Week in Stockholm under the theme of “Energy and Water”.
Having a strong focus on Energy and Water, particularly within it´s flagship project, the WFaS initiative and a very close in-house cooperation, particularly between it´s two research departments dealing with global energy and water concerns, IIASA will play a crucial role in contributing actively too discussions, workshops and conference sessions.

The Water and Energy Nexus
Water and energy are inextricably linked, facing mutual and sometimes compounding limitations due to environmental, technological, and socio-economic changes. However, these resources are often addressed in silos – water only as a resource for energy production or energy production’s adverse effects on water resources. Missing is an adequate appreciation of their synergistic impacts, of how policies and practices in both areas can deny or facilitate their sustainable management. Energy and water technologies already facing such problems of inter-limitations need to share both their challenges and successes on a common platform. A reciprocal encounter of shared learning dialogue between energy and water managers and researchers should highlight policy lessons and technological advances to generate insights on how coherence can be achieved in practice. This dialogue would be of immense value to the North and South, to governments and communities in varied socio-ecological settings striving towards a sustainable future.
In addition to collaborating closely with IIASA and in order to widen the reach, enrich the discussions and encourage convergence the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has teamed up with a number of key collaborating partners: The World Bank, Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
2014 World Water Week in Stockholm will be organized from August 31 to September 5 2014. For further information please also see online information by the Stockholm World Water Week 2014. The full program of the Stockholm World Water Week 2014 can further be found online or downloaded.
