UAE, Jordan and Netherlands to Tackle Challenges in Water, Energy and Food Security Together

Press Room > 2021

Three of the countries are working to spotlight water, energy and food security.  The trilateral endevour will culminate in a high-level Water, Energy and Food Summit in January next year during the Expo 2020 Dubai.

The collaboration will leverage Expo 2020’s role as a global convener to spotlight the complex issues surrounding these three essential resources, and highlight the need for collective action, including an integrated resource management approach to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

While the Summit will be the first initiative to focus on the regional and national policy steps needed to address these challenges in an ntegrated manner, the objectives are: to explore challenges in three sectors; identify policy level solutions; and strengthen research cooperation between the three countries.

Expo 2020 Dubai is the first World Expo hosted in the middle east, Africa and South Asia region which will held from October 1 this year to March 20, 2022.
