What would trade wars mean for food, energy and water systems in the Great Lakes Region?  This is one of the questions a team of experts from The Ohio State University will address in a new National Science Foundation grant from the Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy and Water Systems (INFEWS), a research partnership between the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The grant is expected to exceed $2.4 million over the next three years.  School of Environment and Natural Resources faculty members Douglas Jackson-Smith and Robyn Wilson are a part of the interdisciplinary team that will model and study the interconnected challenges of living in a deglobalized world.  Read more about the project, how the findings will have implications for farmers and consumers and the team in The Chronicle of Higher Education feature, "Life in a deglobalized world: What would trade wars mean for food, energy and water systems?"
