MIT Water Summit 2017: Water-Food Nexus

November 06, 2017, 8:00am - November 07, 2017, 6:00pm

As populations continue to grow and demand for food rises, the role of water in meeting future food needs will become increasingly critical. This year’s MIT Water Summit will focus on issues at the heart of the food-water nexus, reflecting on the role of water in food production – both in agriculture and aquaculture – and the innovation, policy, and technologies required to support healthy and sustainable communities.

On November 6 at 3:20, MIT Joint Program Research Scientist Kenneth Strzepek will participate in the panel "Uncertain Water Future." Uncertainty in the global political atmosphere, climate change, and resource management play a large role in today's world.  How will climate change impact food and water resources?  What roles do politics and the economics of water play?  What technologies are available to reduce uncertainty?
