Novel policies and governance forms are needed to address competition for scarce resources in stressed urban food-water-energy systems.

FUSE adopts an innovative living lab approach in which stakeholders: 1) produce solutions for future urban-FWE challenges, 2) engage in participatory model building, and 3) examine the merits of proposed solutions. Innovative system models quantify connections and feedbacks among users, producers, distribution mechanisms, and resources. The FUSE approach  is being applied to Amman, Jordan and Pune, India: growing urban regions, each with intermittent freshwater supplies and signifi cant competition with agriculture for water and energy.
