The food, energy, and water systems in agricultural regions are a complex and highly interconnected nexus with implications for industry, conservation, public health and more. Ensuring resilience of these systems through the variety of possible approaches to resolving conflicts among a region’s sectors and communities requires new understanding and new models. The primary objective of this symposium is to create the partnerships and roadmap needed to begin developing a scalable and transferable integrated technology-environment-economics model to quantify and develop best practice resilience strategies for this nexus.
