Food-Energy-Water Interdependencies of the Global Agrarian Transition
The aim of this Pursuit is to assess the relationship between large-scale land acquisitions (LSLAs) and the food-energy-water (FEW) nexus considering not only the agricultural elements of this transformation, but also the impacts on land cover, water and energy demand, on ecosystems, and the effects on the socio-economic, cultural and institutional conditions on the affected populations. LSLAs present some unique challenges to FEW systems’ sustainability. Solutions promoting sustainable development will be identified and discussed once the complex interdependencies between the food-water and energy systems are detected and analyzed.
