Can engineering solutions mitigate the climate change before we need to adapt? How can we build low carbon energy systems? How can we integrate water, energy, transport, waste and food systems so that we decouple development from growing use of resources? What are the societal and economic challenges before implementing clearly beneficial engineering solutions? What is the role of sustainable cities and regions?
These and many other questions are being asked and answered by researchers participating in the Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment
Systems (SDEWES Conference), also known as Dubrovnik Conference, an event devoted to scientists, engineers, policy makers, students and other interested parties in the field of sustainable development.
The SDEWES Conference is dedicated to the improvement and dissemination of knowledge on methods, policies and technologies for increasing the sustainability of development by de-coupling growth from natural resources and replacing them with knowledge based economy, taking into account its economic, environmental and social pillars, as well as methods for assessing and measuring sustainability of development, regarding energy, transport, water, environment and food production systems and their many combinations.
