White House Water Summit – 2016 Report

white houseTexas A&M University’s Water-Energy-Food (WEF) Nexus Initiative is announcing three efforts to advance awareness and understanding of, and solutions at, the WEF Nexus. The Initiative will (1) launch a community of practice that will identify and respond to national 20 and global opportunities to assist the development of effective WEF management practices, and to develop a set of common, integrated metrics to better understand the WEF system; (2) develop an educational framework to teach stakeholders about the Nexus, through which the Initiative expects to develop 100 WEF leaders over the next five years; and (3) release comprehensive, multi-scale tools to define and quantify the interconnectivity between WEF and infrastructure. The tools will be initially deployed in the rapidly developing San Antonio, TX area and will ultimately be tested, adapted, and applied nationally.  Access the Full Report White_House_Water_Summit_commitments_report_032216.
