Regional capacity building workshop on “Water - Energy Nexus Operational Toolkit: Resource Efficiency”
The regional workshop will be organized under the strategic framework of UNESCWA on strengthening the capacity of Governments of the MCs on mainstreaming the energy-related SDGs into their national development plans and within the context of the work program 2016-2017.
The capacity building workshop on “Water – Energy Nexus: Resource Efficiency”, targets to improve efficiency during the production and consumption of water and energy resources and services. An operational Resource Efficiency module will be presented, which aims at improving the technical capacity of executives/practitioners from middle management in the government, public utilities and private sector who manage or oversee the provision of water or energy services, and provide technological strategies that can integrate water-energy nexus considerations in the ESCWA’ MCs.
In the workshop, due considerations will be given for cooling process to make the electricity production more water efficient. Similarly, issues related to energy efficiency in water and wastewater processes will be addressed as well as the related financial aspects and key performance indicators for water-energy nexus.
