This lunchtime pavilion event will look at putting nature in the Water-Energy-and Food Security Nexus by using Environmental Flows as a tool to ensure the needs of people and nature are met in a growing and increasingly urbanized world. Environmental flows provide the opportunity to put ecosystems at the centre of water allocation planning through recognising the role freshwater ecosystem play in providing water to people, nature, and key sectors of the economy such as agriculture and energy.
The session will start with brief presentations from organisations active in promoting environmental flows, followed by a panel session and interaction from the audience.
Presenters will include:
Rocio Cordoba, IUCN Mesoamerica
Conservation International (tbc)
James Dalton, IUCN Water Programme (TBC)
