“From Scarcity to Security: Managing Water for a Nutritious Food Future”

Water touches every corner of our lives, but the scarcity of the precious resource along with environmental degradation and constraints on water quality impose significant threats to our future. In fact, by 2050, over one half of the world’s population could be at risk. In the face of increasing water insecurity, how will we grow enough food to feed and nourish a rapidly growing, urbanizing world?

At the Global Food Security Symposium on March 20 to 21st in Washington, D.C, representatives of international NGOs and aid agencies, government leaders, social innovators and influencers will tackle this question, sharing their insights on water management amidst a growing global population, a ever increasing demand for food, and an increasingly more variable climate.

The two-day symposium is a unique opportunity for attendees to explore and discuss collaborative, proactive approaches to improve water quality, reduce water scarcity, and create more resilient and efficient food systems through new, transformative technologies, innovations and policies.
