  • Orlando FL, more details online

The focus of the 2017 Energy Water Food Nexus summit will be
Global Access to Safe Water.

Access to safe drinking water remains one of the biggest challenges facing the global community. The United Nations’ sustainable development efforts estimate that more than 1.5 billion people lack safe drinking water and over 2.5 billion lack access to adequate sanitation. This problem is not restricted to developing countries of the world; it is also a rural America problem as in Flint, Michigan, and as in many other rural communities in America that still depend on unregulated private wells and contaminated surface water for their water needs.

The Energy Water Food Nexus (EWFN) is a biennial International Summit hosted by Florida A&M University. The 2017 Summit is co-hosted by the City of Orlando and will be held on Thursday and Friday, September 21 and 22, 2017, with a Pre-Summit Reception occurring on Wednesday September 20.
