    The biennial Dresden Nexus Conference (DNC) is a platform developed to advance the sustainable development agenda by bringing together actors who apply a Nexus Approach to resource management.

    The theme of DNC2017, to be held on 17–19 May 2017 in Dresden, is “Sustainable Development Goals and the Nexus Approach: Monitoring and Implementation”. The focus will be on (i) multifunctional land-use systems and (ii) resources management in resilient cities, with the aim of:

    • providing scientific evidence for (and quantification of) benefits from applying a Nexus Approach to management of water, soil, and waste resources, including the identification of required data, information, and indicators
    • identifying knowledge gaps and priorities for research, education, and policy advice related
      to integrated management of water, soil, and waste
    • engaging member states and donors in the discussion of needed individual and institutional
      capacities and appropriate strategies for implementation of a Nexus Approach, including
      creating incentives and removing barriers to unlock the potential of a green economy

    Abstracts are now being accepted (until 31 July 2016) for oral and poster presentations.

    For more, including a link to the online submission system, see the Proposals & Submissions page on the DNC website or download the PDF Call for Abstracts.

    The biennial DNC is organised by the UNU Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources (UNU-FLORES), Technische Universität Dresden, and Leibniz Institute for Ecological Urban and Regional Development.
