Global food-energy-water nexus: Implications for Sustainable Agriculture and Energy Development
Sustainable food and energy development in this century is becoming increasingly challenging due to the intricate interactions among the agriculture system, the energy system, and the natural environment. Food, energy, and water systems interact in complex ways. Environmental changes (e.g., climate change) could impose additional threats upon food and energy security via either reducing the magnitude or shifting the temporal and spatial distribution of water resources. Integrating methods and perspectives across disciplines to characterize global food-energy-water nexus, we are able to identify opportunities for sustainable agriculture and energy development under climate change.
