Managing rapidly growing cities is one of the most critical challenges facing Asia and the Pacific. Energy, water, and food are the resources most essential to sustain development efforts, and they are also the most vulnerable to future demand.

The UNESCAP and partner project on “Integrated Resource Management in Asian Cities: the Urban Nexus” has been assisting 12 cities in seven countries in Asia to adopt a “nexus” approach that aims to integrate planning and management across the energy, water and food sectors.

The project has organized six regional workshops to date, providing a platform for cities to exchange experiences. The seventh workshop will be hosted in Tanjungpinang, Indonesia from 19-21 July.
