We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The Dresden Nexus Conference is a platform to discuss current research and initiatives applying the Nexus Approach and the benefits for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
It is a key pillar for advancing the nexus approach to the integrated management of resources. Bringing together scientists, implementers, decision-makers and donors, the Conference has and will continue to connect UN entities, first-class research institutions, governmental institutions and nongovernmental organisations under the umbrella of Sustainable Development Goals and the Water-Soil-Waste Nexus.
JRC scientist and Chair of the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS) and the IPBES thematic assessment on land degradation and restoration (LDR), Luca Montanrella, is a keynote speaker at the Conference.
Deadline for registration: 17 April 2017
