Tanana, Alaska: Connecting food, energy and water

The community of Tanana lies on the confluence of the Tanana and Yukon Rivers in central Alaska. The community is one of four communities selected for participation in the National Science Foundation project, "Coupling infrastructure improvements to food-energy-water system dynamics in small cold region communities: MicroFEWs." MicroFEWs is a four-year project with the ultimate goal of developing a novel systems approach to understanding the linkages between renewable energy use and its downstream impacts on food, energy and water security in remote Arctic and sub-Arctic communities.
