IN CELEBRATION OF EARTH DAY, each year Stanford experts from a range of disciplines meet to discuss the interconnections and interactions among humanity's needs for and use of food, energy, water and the effect they have on climate and conflict. These experts illustrated and evaluated some of the ways in which decisions in one resource area can lead to trade-offs or co-benefits in others, and discussed opportunities to make decisions that can have positive benefits in one area while avoiding negative or unintended consequences in other areas. This year, in celebration of our 5th anniversary of Connecting the Dots, we returned to the food nexus.
