Food-Energy-Water (FEW) resource challenges are some of the most pervasive and persistent problems across the globe. Complexity and contingency are terms that are now in frequent use in addressing FEW issues. Questions are raised about aspects of these systems: Will there be enough water? Can we ensure food security? Can our energy production be sustained? These questions are often posed as if they could be answered objectively using universal metrics; yet, answers usually begin with a qualification: it depends. Beyond the acceptance that ‘context matters’ little has been done to show why, when, and how it matters.

Science Diplomacy: Managing Food, Energy and Water Sustainably aims to understand, explain and resolve FEW problems that stem from complex system dynamics in which traditional frames for problem solving can be limiting. For many of these FEW problems, scientific certainty of a clear-cut solution does not exist. Neither do we have a consensus on what action to take to address these problems effectively. When we neither have clear certainty nor consensus what we need is Science Diplomacy. The Science Diplomacy: Managing Food, Energy and Water Sustainably series is a step in that direction. Contributions in this series will diagnose FEW sustainability issues, 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. This series will promote and help develop a framework that embraces divergent societal views in concert with convergent ideas from science, engineering, and diplomacy.
