The Dresden Nexus Conference 2015 aims to identify best management practices for maintaining and enhancing environmental resources by adopting the nexus approach to their sustainable management, capacity development needs required for the implementation of a nexus approach and the achievement of the SDGs, as well as priorities for research, education and policy advice.

Among the topics in the agenda are the following: climate change adaptation & mitigation, inclusive & sustainable industrial development for resource efficient industries, sustainable energy solutions, eco-cities, urban environmental development, urban ecosystem services & biological diversity, integrated urban water management, soil functions for achieving SDGs, land degradation, water quality, regional land-use dynamics, water security, food waste, integrated land use planning and ecosystem services.
