Panel Discussion – Feeding a Thirsty World: Harnessing the Connections Between Food and Water Security

Photo credit: Thomas de Cain/Winrock International

Seventy percent of global water use is for agriculture, while more than 25 percent of the global population lives in areas facing severe water scarcity and more than 820 million people face chronic food deprivation. A rising global population and changing weather and climate patterns disrupts food and water availability, requiring innovative and forward-looking approaches to securing food and water for vulnerable populations.

Join this discussion from USAID, the Sustainable Water Partnership (SWP), and Winrock International to explore what these approaches look like across the public and private sectors.

Registration and coffee beginning at 9:30 am.
