Event description
A Systems Engineering Approach to the Food-Energy-Water Nexus

About this event

Food, energy and water are among the most essential requirements for the thriving of every society. Although conventionally they are supplied by different economic sectors, the challenges facing their secure supply are highly interconnected, due to the significant energy and water consumption in food production, the mutual footprint between energy and water production, and the intertwined connections of the three sectors with land and the broader ecosystems. The interconnectedness between the three sectors has been depicted by the term ‘food–energy–water (FEW) nexus’, as a concept helping to raise awareness of the inseparable challenges and to frame the needs for an integrative approach.

This talk will review the challenges associated with the FEW nexus and present our research in applying a model-based systems engineering approach to the analysis, design and assessment of the FEW nexus, particularly focusing on local/regional FEW systems and the resource nexus associated with urban agriculture.

Speaker: Prof. Aidong Yang, Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford

Registration is now open.

You will be sent a link at 12.30pm on Tuesday, 28 September 2021. This will allow you to access our talk that will start at 3pm.
