At the inaugural DNC in 2015, over 350 participants from 65 countries and all continents came together in Dresden to share research and experience on applying nexus-oriented strategies for achieving sustainable development. With the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals at the beginning of 2016, there has never been a more important time for advancing integrated and holistic strategies for managing the limited resources available on our planet.
Therefore once again, from 17 to 19 May 2017, the Dresden-based Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources of the University of the United Nations (UNU-FLORES), the Technische Universität Dresden (TU Dresden) and the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) will organize DNC2017 under the umbrella “SDGs and the Nexus Approach: Monitoring and Implementation”. Word- class international researchers, practitioners and politicians will debate the sustainable use of environmental resources under conditions of planetary limits and growing demand.
Conference stakeholders include the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), United Nations
Environment Programme (UNEP), UN-Habitat, UNESCO, multiple United Nations University Institutes as well as renowned international and research institutions such as the Global Water Partnership, the International Hydropower Association, the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage, The International Water Management Institute, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), the Center for Development Research (ZEF), the Center for Environmental Systems Research, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and the Sachsen State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts.
