This Panel of the world water congress will specifically focus on the Sustainable Development Goals related to Water, Energy, and Food (SDGs 2, 6, and 7). The main objectives of the Panel are to: demonstrate the extent of the interconnections between the water, energy, and food goals, explore possible tradeoffs for implementing the SDGs and identifying a holistic assessment criteria for multiple implementation plans at different scales, and ddiscuss ways among which the policy coherence and policy-science communication could be improved across sectors and across scales. The discussion in the Panel will start with challenges in securing adequate tools, data, modelling complexity, governance and financing, starting with the global perspective, and moving to the more local and national scales. It will build on this material by considering lessons learned from various partner institutions on the potential and risks of adopting the Water, Energy, and Food nexus as a platform for SDG implementation.
