At the Center of the Food, Energy and Environment Nexus: Water is the New Oil  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Growing more food using less water is one of the greatest challenges facing the global community. Today, agriculture is responsible for 70% of water withdrawals. By 2050 the human population is expected to increase by 40%, resulting in a doubling in the demand for food. How do we feed the world and provide clean water at the same time?

Dr. Ronnie Green will discuss how the University of Nebraska is addressing critical questions about water and food security through the Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Institute. The Water for Food Institute is a research, education and policy analysis institute committed to helping the world efficiently use its limited freshwater resources, with particular focus on ensuring the food supply for current and future generations.
