On April 26, 2018, the Water Salon on “Fresh Impetus of SDG 6/7/2 for the Water-Energy-Food Nexus” was held in Beijing. As the initiators, GWP China, World Resources Institute (WRI) and Energy Foundation (EF) allied the SDGs regarding water, energy and agriculture, and set up a free place for governments, academic institutes, NGOs, corporations and media to share educational outcomes and practical tactics.
Challenges reflect that social-economic growth has raised demand for food and energy production, and eventually generated high stress on water resources. Restricted water would hardly sustain any more massive production of food and energy. It expected a set of solutions that consist of modules, technologies, governance skills for the challenges to SDGs regarding the water-energy-food nexus upon realities.  
Water Salon was settled in an ethnic building where convened experts and practitioners from Energy Foundation, IUCN, WWF, China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research, Peking University, Renmin University, Tongji University, China Water Power Press, Power Construction Corporation of China and Qiaonyu Foundation.
