Student International Workshop Food-Energy-Water Nexus for Urban Sustainability (FEWSUS)

Urban systems, including cities and surrounding regions, occupy less than 4% land surface area on the earth but support 66% of population and contribute more than 80% of gross domestic product and more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions in the world.

The water-food-energy nexus provides a conceptual tool for addressing urban sustainable development.  Demand for all three is increasing, driven by a rising global population, rapid urbanization, changing diets and economic growth. Currently, estimates project that by 2050, water and food demands will grow by over 50%, while urban energy demands may double.
