Feeding a Thirsty World: Harnessing the Connections Between Food and Water Security (Live Stream)


Food and water security are deeply entwined. 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. As the global population continues to rise and changing weather and climate patterns disrupts food and water availability, we need innovative and forward-looking approaches to securing food and water for vulnerable populations.

USAID, the Sustainable Water Partnership (SWP), and Winrock International held this discussion on March 25, 2019 at the Woodrow Wilson Center to explore what these approaches look like across the public and private sectors.
