The food-energy-water (FEW) nexus is of critical significance to Asia as two thirds of world’s population is living in this region and it accounts for nearly 60% and 30% of global water and energy consumption, respectively. It remains a pressing challenge to ensure food, water and energy security for sustaining Asian development.
This workshop focuses on a critical region, Asia, and serves as a model case to advance our understanding and assessment of FEW nexus for feeding an increasing population, and meeting human’s demands for water and energy while maintaining environmental sustainability. It may serve as a platform that “breaks down barriers between fields”, to build common ground and explore linkages among resource, technology, and economy in the FEW nexus for Asia and the world.
The workshop was organized by International Center for Climate and Global Change Research, Auburn University.
