FAFS' Dean Mohtar was recently awarded the American Society of Agriculture and Biological Engineers (ASABE) Paper award in first place. Co-written with John Blake, Amjad Assi, Erik Braudeau and Cristine Morgan, the paper was about the Quantification of Available Water Capacity Comparing Standard Methods and a Pedostructure Method on a Weakly Strucutured Soil. This session focused on unlocking new potential for addressing interconnected resource challenges through bridging accumulated experiences in modelling interconnections between resource systems with theories in social science and their application. Panel members used pilot implementation projects from several Water-Energy-Food Nexus hotspots globally. They shared lessons learned, regarding the modelling and quantitative analysis of interlinkages, as well as the use of relevant social theories in achieving potential convergence and increasing stakeholder understanding of the trade-offs associated with resource allocation and consumption. Shared research and experiences will contribute to our efforts to operationalize WEF nexus research toward Sustainable Development Goal implementation.
