Climate-Smart Water Seminar

Tuesday, November 29, 2016
9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

UC DAVIS

The current prolonged drought and water quality issues in California highlight a number of challenges related to the water-food-nutrient nexus. This seminar focuses on the need for smart, innovative and sustainable solutions on a variety of scales, from plot level to complete watershed. 

The seminar is part of an ongoing partnership in Climate-Smart Agriculture with the World Food Center, the Consulate General of the Netherlands and the California Departments of Water Resources (DWR) and Food and Agriculture (CDFA). UC Davis has been a member of the Global Alliance for Climate-Smart Agriculture since the first scientific conference in 2011, having also hosted the 2013 conference and co-sponsored the 2015 event. 

The event will be followed by lunch and networking.
