Series

In our interconnected world of today, water is central to any discussion of food, energy, health, environment and ecosystems. Traditionally, we have harnessed the potential of water with reservoirs, dams, and treatment facilities. Today, there is a growing realization that many of these responses have not adequately protected the interests of individuals and communities as compared to those of industry, agriculture and ecosystems. Indeed, many of our solutions and interventions are not sustainable, especially considering global population growth, our consumption ethic, and the changing global climate. We must find ways to manage water resources more effectively.

More effective resolution of our increasingly complex, boundary-crossing water problems demands integration of scientific knowledge of water in both natural and human systems along with the politics of real-world problem solving. Water professionals struggle to translate ideas that emerge from science and technology into the messy context of the real world. We need to find more effective ways to bridge the divide between theory and practice and resolving complex water management problems when natural, societal and political elements cross multiple sectors and interact in unpredictable ways. The Anthem Diplomacy at the Food-Water-Energy Nexus Series is a step in that direction. Contributions in this series diagnose water governance and management problems, identify intervention points and possible policy changes, and propose sustainable solutions that are sensitive to diverse viewpoints as well as conflicting values, ambiguities and uncertainties.
