Energy, water and sanitation are some of the most cross-cutting and deeply embedded factors affecting the daily lives of people all over the world. These factors are essential to achieve poverty eradication, social wellbeing, economic growth and global prosperity. Important challenges related to water and energy are faced by many countries in their efforts to achieve sustainable development. Also, water and energy are strongly interlinked to environmental issues including climate change, terrestrial and water ecosystems, and biodiversity. The importance of energy and water is recognized by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which includes the Sustainable Development Goals 6 on water and 7 on energy. SDG 6 calls for ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all and SDG 7 calls for ensuring universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services. The main objective of this global symposium is to enhance the capacities of relevant stakeholders including governmental institutions to effectively manage the water-energy nexus and interlinkages with other SDGs covering the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. The event will provide a global platform for all stakeholders to disseminate knowledge, exchange experiences and showcase best practices on integrated approaches that support sustainable water and energy solutions. It will also represent an opportunity for dialogue on effective policy, and technical and managerial approaches to water and energy supporting sustainable development. It is expected that the discussions and outcomes of this Global Symposium will set the ground for the development of the First World Report on the Status and Trends of Sustainable Water and Energy Solutions.
