• Planting the Seeds to Examine Food Security Challenges in the Alaska Food-Energy-Water Nexus

      Schmidt, Jennifer I. (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska, 2019)
      What is the Food-Energy-Water Nexus? It is the relationship between the energy that is used to clean and treat water and to grow food. It is also the recognition that it takes water to grow food and produce electrical power, and that it takes food to power us all to keep these systems running. This set of relationships can be considered at different scales including the "micro" that is most characteristic of small island communities in Alaska. This presentation was delivered at the Alaska Food Policy Council 2019 Festival and Conference.
