Water for Food Conference Registration Open

Cindy Zimmerman

Registration is now open for the 2017 Water for Food Global Conference April 10-12 at Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The conference, organized by the Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska, will examine the work being done to ensure water for food security from local to global scales. The three-day event will bring together experts from around the world to explore “Water for Food Security: From Local Lessons to Global Impacts,” a theme inspired by the notion that global breakthroughs come from local action.

Among this year’s speakers are A.G. Kawamura, former California Secretary of Agriculture and third generation fruit and vegetable grower; and Marlos De Souza, Secretary, Water Platform Land & Water Division, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

A discount of $100 is available to those who register on or before March 10. Conference details, including how to register, are available at waterforfood.nebraska.edu/2017wfc.
