Developing Intelligent Food, Energy, and Water Systems

Food, energy, and water systems are inextricably intertwined, especially in drought-prone California. Managing these systems in an integrated way can improve outputs and efficiencies across agricultural, rural, and urban sectors. We work with scientists, economists, and engineers to develop robust understanding and improved management of the food, energy, and water nexus.

CURRENT PROJECTS:

  • 2015 National Science Foundation workshop on Developing Intelligent Food, Energy, and Water Systems (executive summarydownload report)
  • Linking management of food, energy, and water in the face of increasing climate and population stressors
  • Biodiversity impacts embedded in food waste
  • Understanding urban food waste
