109 World Café: Food-Energy-Water Nexus (Invited Talks)

Monday, November 14, 2016: 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Union Square 15 & 16 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
The affordable production, security, and safety of Food, Energy, and Water resources (the FEW Nexus) can no longer be addressed in isolation. The complicated world structure and global connections result in a complex system problem with the search to balance local needs and complex global connections. New frameworks, methodologies, and tools that account for diverse stakeholders are needed to manage the Nexus. Chemical engineers bring important understanding, skills, and gifts to address this problem. This plenary session, a continuing AIChE / IChemE collaboration on the Nexus, leads a topical conference on the Nexus that is being established to provide a forum for exchanging research, case studies, and ideas.
