Federal Crowdsourcing Webinar Series, Episode 13: Securing Water for Food’s Crowdsourcing Culture


Over the last nine years, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has organized 11 Grand Challenges for Development. These programs bring together governments, foundations, and the private sector to improve global development problems. The latest grand challenge, Securing Water for Food (SWFF), recently published their final report detailing the processes and culture that made the program such a success.

In this webinar, Dr. Ku McMahan discusses the culture, program management, and outcomes of SWFF. He will be sharing how SWFF’s process for finding and scaling new water and agriculture solutions helped 7 million farmers and their families produce 6.8 million tons of food and save 19 billion liters of water.
