INF 523 - Informatics For Community Food, Energy And Water Systems

Description: This course employs the FEWSION for Community Resilience (F4R) process and a related curriculum to engage students in collecting data on the physical structure and stakeholder networks of their local critical infrastructure Food, Energy, and Water (FEW) systems in Flagstaff. Students will network with community leaders and stakeholders, NGO's, private sector FEW businesses, utilities, emergency managers, and volunteers who contribute to the successful operation of the system. Students will employ field work to construct a detailed map of the system and contribute to an ongoing annual effort to quantify Flagstaff's FEW systems. Training on software and data systems specialized for FEW supply chains will be delivered. The sustainability, equity, and security of the system will be studied and measured. Student projects will employ these relationships and data to study how policy and action can improve the local FEW system. Co-convened with INF 423. Letter grade only.
