Hot off the press! At the Confluence from 2014 World Water Week
The 2014 World Water Week focused on the linkages between water and energy. Energy and water are inextricably linked: water is needed for energy, and energy is needed for water. As developing countries grow, and economic activities and disposable incomes increase in many countries, the demand and competition for finite water resources and energy also increase.
Many of the articles in this volume reflect complex issues regarding competing water demands and trade-offs between food production, energy production, social, environmental and economic issues.
IUCN, The World Bank and the Sustainable Energy for All were partners in the organization of the 2014 World Water Week and have also contributed to the production of this volume.
