The Food-Energy-Water (FEW) Nexus project for Monash Clayton Campus was presented by Dr Shirin Malekpour to a global audience of policy makers, media and academics in the Ideas and Innovation Forum in Stockholm, in August 2017.
The project is one of about 20 competitively selected projects from around the world (among more than 330 applications) to be presented in the forum. The project will also feed into UN’s High Level Political Forum in 2018, which follows up and reviews the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.
About the ICSS
The 7th International Conference on Sustainability Science (ICSS) was held in Stockholm, hosted by Future Earth in partnership with Stockholm Resilience Centre. It is the first large international conference that brings together the academic research community with other stakeholders to address the challenges of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals.
The conference was designed to dovetail with the Resilience 2017 Conference which took place in Stockholm 21-23 August, with the intention of creating productive and innovative interactive sessions by bringing together the resilience scholar community and the sustainability science community. The focus was on innovation, new knowledge generation and integration to support the SDGs through Future Earth’s Knowledge Action Networks and SDG Labs.
