The interconnection of water, energy, and food resources is complex, with the availability of these resources increasingly stressed by climatic, social, political, economic, demographic, technologic, and other pressures. Addressing these challenges requires a better understanding of the nexus formed by the interconnections between the resources. On January 10, 2018, the Texas A&M University System WaterEnergy-Food Initiative held the Water-Energy-Food Nexus Stakeholder Information Sharing and Engagement Workshop on the campus of Texas A&M University-San Antonio. The workshop involved over 70 stakeholders drawn from the water, energy, and food sectors in San Antonio and surrounding region. Stakeholders attending the workshop heard presentations on the status of San Antonio Case Study pilot projects and other WEF nexus work. Facilitated small-group sessions were held at
the workshop to obtain stakeholder input on research questions to be asked, and on limitations and opportunities for stakeholder engagement on WEF nexus-related work in the San Antonio and
the South Texas Region. Workshop participants also took before and after surveys to gauge knowledge about the WEF nexus.
