    Water scarcity is, in principle, a local problem; it becomes international in the case of transboundary resource use. In practice, approaches for an equitable resource use of transboundary resources are based on benefit sharing methodologies on catchment scale. Peaceful dispute resolution is one main task in hydropolitics, based on the principles of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and Transboundary Water Management (TWM). While IWRM is an engineering approach to sustainable watershed management, TWM provides a political framework for effective crisis prevention and nonviolent conflict management under a nexus-based resource sharing strategy.

    Nexus Seminar Series

    UNU-FLORES in collaboration with the Faculty of Environmental Sciences of TU Dresden is excited to announce the Nexus Seminar Series. The joint seminar series, which launched in 2015, features lectures by senior scholars that highlight all dimensions of research on the Nexus Approach, ranging from hands-on implementation strategies to theoretical debates. The Nexus Seminars serve not only as a platform for scientific exchange and cooperation between UNU-FLORES and TU Dresden but also a medium for the partner institutions to discuss their research with a broader audience.

    Taking place once a month, each seminar is open to the public and held alternatingly at UNU-FLORES and TU Dresden.
