The Foresight and Metrics Research Initiative of the CGIAR (F&M)1, the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change at MIT (JP-MIT), and Oxford University via the Oxford Martin School (O-OMS) are each pursuing pathways for agriculture, forestry, and other land use (PAFOLU) in support of sustainable development, equitable solutions and a stable climate. They are doing so in distinct but potentially complementary ways.

The Colorado River and the Nile River are both undergoing dramatic transformations. Throughout the last century and continuing today, major infrastructure developments have played a pivotal role in shaping the regional economies, livelihoods and environmental conditions of these two critical transboundary river systems. Our growing dependencies on these finite renewable resources are driven by population growth and economic expansion, but are being increasingly challenged by water scarcity that is partly driven by climate change.
