Goals and Objectives
The workshop will build collaborative processes between Nexus stakeholders in San Antonio and surrounding areas. It is anticipated that every iteration of the dialogue will deepen stakeholder understanding of the shared vision that will ultimately evolve into a set of collaborative actions regarding water, energy and food nexus sustainability research and actions. The lessons and outcomes of the workshop will lay the foundation for extrapolation to elsewhere in Texas and beyond.
To gather key Nexus stakeholders and engage in educational outreach and discussion about ongoing San Antonio Case Study pilot projects, current Nexus programs, and important Nexus-related issues such as existing data and research gaps, particularly as these relate to San Antonio and the South Texas Region, we will:
- Inform stakeholders about ongoing and planned Nexus research and educational activities.
- Identify possible and desirable information sharing opportunities and actions.
- Identify and “test” the concept of a coordinated stakeholder engagement plan for future Nexus-related matters.
- Establish an ongoing dialogue between scientists, Nexus-related policy makers, government officials, civil society advocates, and industry leaders.
