Webinar // Opportunities of Water-Energy-Food Nexus Approach

The American University of Beirut (AUB) and Texas A&M University (TAMU) invite you to a webinar presenting the findings published in the Science of the Total Environment (STOTEN) Special Issue: Opportunities in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus Approach: Innovatively driving economic development, social well-being, and environmental sustainability.

The event is culmination of the experience of the Texas A&M University Water-Energy-Food Nexus Initiative (WEFNI) in creating a University wide, four year, investigatory experience, led by Rabi Mohtar, WEFNI Coordinator, TEES Research Professor, and Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences (FAFS), American University of Beirut (AUB).
