The Energy-Water-Food Nexus: Risks and Opportunities for the Private Sector
December 11, 2014
Washington D.C., United States
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center is hosting the second in a series of roundtables, The Energy-Water-Food Nexus: Risks and Opportunities for the Private Sector. The roundtables pinpoint the nexus risks to businesses, and examine why and how leadership from the private sector, in collaboration with key stakeholders, is critical to successfully manage the synergies and tradeoffs among water, food, and energy infrastructure for the benefit of society, business, and the environment.
In partnership with Lockheed Martin, this roundtable will contrast nexus realities in specific U.S. geographies -- the Western Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains, and the Gulf of Mexico. This includes a discussion of cutting edge research, how data and science can drive collective action, and how nexus-based approaches can inform regional and emerging national energy and water policy processes. The event is free and open to the public.
