The World Food Center and the Center for Strategic and International Studies are co-hosting this seminar on the opportunities and challenges of sustainably securing water for global food security.
Water is central to the productivity and resilience of global agriculture. Irrigated lands are twice as productive as rainfed and are less vulnerable to changing rainfall patterns with climate change.
