The Dresden Nexus Conference is a platform developed to advance the sustainable development agenda by bringing actors together who apply a Nexus Approach to resource management. Side by side, researchers and implementers (policy- and decision makers) from universities, national and international organizations, UN entities, ministries and governmental agencies, as well as individual researchers and stakeholders from the private sector and civil society discuss current research and initiatives applying the Nexus Approach and the benefits for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
DNC 2017 will consider examples and case studies addressing monitoring and implementation strategies targeting research, education and advocacy (or any combination thereof), all of which are essential for advancing a Nexus Approach. At DNC2017 issues related to monitoring and implementation strategies will be specified and addressed both for rural as well as urban and peri-urban systems. In particular, we will consider Multifunctional Land-Use Systems and Resources Management in Resilient Cities.
