Unfortunately, the beginning of this recording is missing. For context, our moderator, Kevin Sofen, gave an introduction to the panel, and Diego Juan Rodriguez had started giving his introductory remarks.

As urban areas continue to grow, cities face a variety of competing environmental, economic, and social demands. The water-energy nexus highlights interactions between these demands: LA’s distributed water system, for instance, promoted urban sprawl that has increased transportation-related energy expenditure. This panel will highlight solutions and strategies to effectively manage resources in cities around the world, exploring how the relationship between water access and energy use creates both challenges and opportunities for urban planners.
