The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent “a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, now and into the future.” Of the 17 goals, 8 are closely tied to essential food, land and water resources that are already under intense pressure. Yet there are inevitable trade-offs among SDGs, including demands for poverty reductions, food security, energy security, provision of clean water, conservation of biodiversity, and climate change mitigation.

These challenges are particularly ‘wicked’ in the context of global-to-local-to-global forces. Use of land and water resources reflects local circumstances and requires fine-scale analyses. However, market forces and government policies drive aggregate demands for these natural resources, therefore requiring national and global analyses. Achieving multiple SDGs through the efficient, equitable, and sustainable use of land and water resources will require harnessing newly available data streams and integrating recently developed modeling approaches. Land and water resource analysis and solutions must also integrate numerous disciplines, including: crop science, climate science, computer science, ecology, economics, geography, hydrology, law and political science, among others.
