WORKSHOP | Rethinking Law in a Nexus Future: Governing energy, water, food and climate challenges | 11-12 January 2018 | Phoenix
Monday, January 1, 2018

The PLuS Alliance has collaborated with the UNSW Global Water Institute, UNSW Law, and the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law to present this two-day workshop on governing the energy-water-food-climate nexus. The workshop explores successes and key flashpoints of legal responses to nexus challenges in the United States, Australia and globally to advance existing thinking, develop fresh policy frameworks and diffuse innovations for governing global nexus issues.

The workshop is hosting over 20 participants from Arizona State University, King’s College London, UNSW Sydney and internationally invited guests, including:

>       Emily Hammond | George Washington University

>       Robin Kundis Craig | University of Utah

>       Andres MartInez Moscoso | University of Cuenca

>       Ben Milligan | University College London

>       Christine Parker | University of Melbourne

>       Darren Sinclair | Australian National University

Energy, water, food and climate are the pillars on which our society and security rest. These issues are so intertwined that pressures in any one sector increasingly produce tensions in others. Recognition of such connections has led to growing international and national consensus that governing the energy-water-food-climate nexus is one of the defining challenges of our time.

This PLuS Alliance workshop brings to the fore new lines of vision and new voices to the analysis of nexus issues as we move forward into the 21st century.
