- To receive feedback on the Willamette INFEWS project, from individuals with expertise in Willamette River Basin food, energy and water systems.
This is the second of four annual workshops. The 2018 workshop introduced the INFEWS project and the research team, and sought feedback on the project's conceptual design, modeling approach, and hypotheses. This second workshop will:
- Provide an update on INFEWS project activities and progress.
- Share and seek feedback on modeling assumptions and early model results, using a "business-as-usual" scenario as an example.
- Introduce and receive feedback on possible themes for a small set of “alternative future scenarios”.
- Explore new ideas about water, food, and energy management in the Willamette River Basin, with an emphasis on cross-sector connections.
