The Food-Energy-Water (FEW) Nexus of resources is directly linked to the UN Sustainability Development Goals. The interdependence of the FEW Nexus is a complex, dynamic, engineering, and social challenge. Disruptions, technology innovation, climate change, and social change are common international factors that require consideration in responding to the Nexus challenges. While there are significant differences in each nation or community, there are common themes to incorporate in an approach to addressing the challenges. An international perspective is presented.
