January 10th, 2018: 5:30 - 8:00 PM at PRESSED in Dallas Live Music with Wild Hog in the Wood! Special Presentation by Chad Higgins: Scarcity Amid Abundance: Understanding Trade-offs in the Food-Energy-Water Nexus in the Willamette River Basin Food, energy, and water security are required for the health, prosperity and welfare of growing populations. Resource security is also needed to prepare for anticipated land use change, wildfire, population change, climatic alterations and unpredictable future events. Food, energy and water security cannot be achieved in isolation, with supply chains that are linked at every stage, and influenced by a range of common factors (markets, laws, policies).
Come and hear how Chad Higgins and his team will begin to research this fascinating topic and how they plan to investigate the regional consequences of changes in policy related to the management of forests, reservoirs and agricultural production.
