This special issue of Environmental Engineering Science highlights the role of environmental engineering and science (EES) in interdisciplinary efforts to understand and protect food security, water resources, and sustainable energy. It includes articles that present model frameworks, theoretical constructs, as well as practical applications. Case studies provide a global perspective, as well as drawing attention to considerations of racial and ethnic inequalities, human health, and multiscale governance. As the EES community evaluates research efforts for 21st century challenges, food, energy, and water nexus research can provide interdisciplinary ideas for improving natural resource provisioning across the water, food, and energy spectrum.
