The ResNexus conference will be held at Wageningen University & Research in Wageningen, the Netherlands, on November 7 and 8, 2018. The conference will bring together academics and practitioners working in government and civil society who are dealing with the Urban Water Energy Food and Environment Nexus worldwide.
The conference is part of the “Resilience and Vulnerability at the urban nexus of food, water, energy and the environment” (ResNexus) project jointly funded by the FAPESP, ESRC and NWO. It will be hosted by the Environmental Policy Group at Wageningen University and Research in conjunction with the ResNexus project partners Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) at the University of Sussex and the Faculty of Public Health at the University of São Paulo.
We welcome session proposals, papers and case studies that aim to (re)examine the way multiple forms of interactions (dependence, integration, dis/connection, competition, symbiosis etc.) between water, energy, food and the environment shape vulnerabilities and/or create opportunities for resilience within cities. We welcome the use of any concepts, literatures and methods for unpacking the interactions between resource flows, infrastructures, institutions and people.
