The member states of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) convene to give a new impulse to the economic integration efforts in the Euro-Mediterranean region. “Addressing the employment and labour challenges in the UfM region: 4th UfM Ministerial Meeting on Employment and Labour”

To celebrate this Water International Day, we have the pleasure to announce you the official date of WssTP stakeholder events, "Water Innovation Europe" on the 12th & 13th June 2019 in Brussels! This year's theme - "Water meets energy, energy meets water" - will be the common thread of all the conference.

The 5TOI_4EWAS consortium has developed the Joint Action Plan. It means to support the improvement of research-policy coordination in the Energy, Water and food domain allowing existing and future interventions to effectively face societal challenges.

The third 5TOI_4EWAS Innovation week will be held in Tunisia gathering the most relevant experts to examine strategies for a smarter and more sustainable Euro-mediterranean development for the years to come!

The AFRICA 2019 conference will bring together industry professionals in Namibia, a country with a variety of dams, to discuss water and energy issues relevant to Africa.

New rules for making the EU's electricity market work better have been provisionally agreed by negotiators from the Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission.

Following the objectives set out in the UfM Water Declaration, and under the umbrella of the UfM Task Force, the three organisations are currently preparing a joint "Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem Nexus"publication in the form of a Nexus Atlas. In order to grasp the current status of the region, the baseline analysis will be complemented by a collection of best practices in assessments of the Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem (WEFE) Nexus. We, therefore, call on interested parties to suggest useful examples by completing the 'Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem Nexus – Best practice example' form below and sending it to: JRC-UFM-GWPMed-ATLAS@ec.europa.eu.

Global challenges require joint action on the part of the international community, and preferably the whole international community. Therefore, the EU seeks to use its diplomatic tools in order to get everyone on board, particularly the biggest countries, and to support the most vulnerable ones.

Modelling the interactions between energy, water and food is important because the three resources are interdependent, and changes in one sector, as a result of policies, climate change or growing demands, can have serious implications for the others.
