Stanford experts from a range of disciplines discussed the interconnections and interactions among humanity's use of water, food, energy and the environment. Drawing on their own research, speakers illustrated and evaluated some of the ways in which decisions in one resource area can lead to trade-offs or co-benefits in others. They examined sustainable freshwater resources and uses in Africa, Asia, and the U.S. West. Symposium attendees participated in breakout sessions led by Stanford graduate students and a postdoctoral scholar, on a range of challenges associated with sustainable freshwater.
