EMG Nexus Dialogue: Strengthening partnerships between the environmental and humanitarian sectors in the context of the 2030 Agenda

19/10/2017 - 09:00 - 17:00

The next editon of the Nexus Dialogue, organized by the UN Environment Management Group (EMG), will be held in Geneva on Thursday, 19 October 2017 .

The Dialogues will bring UN agencies and other stakeholders closer together in identifying further synergies and partnerships at the intersection of the different Goals, and subsequently supporting the implementation of the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda in a more coherent and collaborative manner.

The Dialogue will consist of two segments:

  1. A Technical Segment from 9.00 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. 
  2. A High-Level Segment from 2.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. 

During the Technical Segment, attendees will focus on the theory and process of applying nexus thinking in practice. The morning session will explore the links and interdependencies between the environmental and humanitarian sectors in the context of implementing the SDGs, and will provide attendees with examples from the humanitarian-environment nexus. The session will deliberate on the creation of partnerships and strengthened collaboration, providing an opportunity for Member States to consider how a nexus approach could support collaboration among different governmental departments.   

The day’s event will close with a High Level Segment featuring a panel discussion which will be based on the outcomes of the technical segment. The panel will delve into the overall thematic focus of this Dialogue on strengthening partnerships between the environmental and humanitarian sectors in the context of the 2030 Agenda.
