We hope to promote stakeholder dialogue and improve opportunities for economic development, enhance social welfare, and drive innovation and integration of water, energy, and food planning and allocation in the San Antonio region.
Texas A&M University System researchers will lead a series of panel discussions, presentations, and a facilitated workshop with nexus stakeholders. We will encourage active participation by all, with opportunity to learn and help inform others.
Texas A&M researchershas an on-going set of pilot projects focused on supporting the planning for Water-Energy-Food (The Nexus) resources in San Antonio and the surrounding regions, as climate changes alter water supplies and weather patterns.
Nexus Research Relevant to San Antonio and Surrounding Areas
Participants will receive general information about the Nexus and research activities already underway by the Texas A&M research partners and associates. Participants will learn details from the lead researchers about six San Antonio case studies now underway and hear about a new National Science Foundation funded Nexus research project that will be centered, in part in the San Antonio area.
