Energy and Water are pillars of the future that seem to get ever shakier just as the world needs them to be ever stronger.

The World Future Energy Summit, the International Water Summit and the Abu Dhabi International Renewable Energy Conference will together seek sustainable solutions, initiate and encourage dialogue between industry, science, governments and civil society, tackle water challenges particularly in arid regions, promote investment and speed up global adoption of renewable energy.
