The project’s final Science-Policy Dialogue took place in San Antonio, Texas, on November 4, 2022, and represented the culmination of a major federally funded National Science Foundation (NSF) project on water, energy, and food resources. The project used San Antonio, TX and Salton Sea Basin, CA as case studies for sustainable resources management in the USA.
A major goal of the project was to equip multi-sectoral stakeholders with models and decision support tools capable of evaluating the trade-offs and synergies associated with decisions made across food, energy, and water (FEW) systems in the two Regions.
An interdisciplinary team of hydrologists, agricultural economists, energy engineers, water engineers, agricultural experts, and outreach specialists worked over the last 5 years and engaged with stakeholders from both regions.
Project outcomes include the development of innovative integrated FEW models and key recommendations for better coordinated management of the interconnected resources systems in both water scarce regions.
