Energy, water and food/agriculture systems are inextricably linked. Understanding the intersection of these three systems is important since a disruption can present serious risks to an organization and lead to cascading impacts. This session will cover the linkages of these systems as well as the impacts, risks, and opportunities associated with the energy, water and agriculture/food nexus, and how it relates to greenhouse gases. Bootcamp instructors will provide examples of how these interdependencies can play out in a warming world.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding the relationship between water, energy, and food systems
  • Identifying the cascading implications resulting from shortages or disruptions in these systems
  • Appreciating the complexities of the interconnected relationships
