The 2017 Water for Food Global Conference took place this week at at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln.  More than 400 experts attended the event to focus on ways to grow more food with less water.  One of the major topics of concern at the conference was finding new ways to increase sustainable irrigation in sub-Saharan Africa for increased water and food security.

At a media conference earlier this week, Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute executive director Peter McCornick was joined by International Water Management Institute director for Africa Tim Williams to talk about this important topic.
