Global Choke Point Initiative
The conflicting demand for water, energy and food is one of the defining challenges of the 21st century. Under Global Choke Point, a collaborative initiative between Circle of Blue and the Wilson Center, CEF has created stories, infographics, videos, and workshops that explore the intensifying confrontation between growing energy demand, food needs, and declining freshwater supplies in China, India, and the United States. Our Choke Point: China work informed the creation of a water-energy track under the landmark 2014 U.S.-China Climate and Clean Energy Agreement. Today, our water-energy work is diving deep into low-carbon urban water solutions in the United States and China.
